​Roll On Buddy

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears…

Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go

Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go

It's a long way to Hazard, it's a long way to Harlan
Just to get a little brew, just to get a little brew

Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go

This old hammer shine like silver
Rings like gold, ring like gold

Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go

This old hammer, killed John Henry
But it can't kill me, no it can't kill me

Roll on buddy! Don't you roll so slow
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go

Roll on buddy! Pull a load of coal
How can I roll, when the wheels won't go
