B
i. I've been drivin' All 'round Bald Mountain, I've been drivin' All 'round Bald Mountain, I've been drivin' All 'round Bald Mountain All my time, Buddy, Now's my time.
2.  I've been drivin'
When the Big Ben Tunnel,
I've been drivin'
When the Big Ben Tunnel,
I've been drivin'
When the Big Ben Tunnel
And now my time, Buddy,
Now's my time.
3. I've been drivin'
Ever since Johnny was a baby,
I've been drivin'
Ever since Johnny was a baby,
I've been drivin'
Ever since Johnny was a baby
He's a man, Buddy,
He's a man.
4.  Take the hammer Fallin5 from my shoulder, Take the hammer Fallin' from my shoulder, Take the hammer Fallin' from my shoulder On the ground, Buddy, In the ground.
