5. Take this hammer
And give it to the captain,
Take this hammer
And give it to the captain,
Take this hammer
And give it to the captain,
And tell him I'm gone, Buddy,
Tell him I'm gone.
6. If he asks you
If I was runnin';
If he asks you
If I was runnin';
If he asks you
If I was runnin',
Tell him I's flyin', Buddy,
Tell him I's flyin'.
7.  This ole hammer Sholy must be loaded; This ole hammer Sholy must be loaded; This ole hammer Sholy must be loaded, It won't nng, Buddy, It won't ring.
8. Everything-thing That you see shinin', Everything-thing That you see shinin', Everything -thing That you see shinin',
It ain't no gold, Buddy, It ain't no gold.
