I'M A JACKHAMMER JOHN
A JACKHAMMER MAN
BORN WITH A JACKHAMMER
IN MY HAND
 LORD LORD I GOT THEM
 JACKHAMMER BLUES
JACKHAMMER MAN
FROM A JACKHAMMER TOWN
 BUILT EVERY PORT
 FROM THE NORTH POLE DOWN
LORD GOD I GOT THEM
 JACKHAMMER BLUES

HAMMERED IN THE RAIN
HAMMERED IN THE DUST
HAMMERED IN THE BEST
AND I HAMMERED IN THE WORST
HAMMERED IN THE EAST
HAMMERED IN THE WEST
HAMMERED TO THE ONE
THAT I LIKE BEST
 HEY HEY HEY
 I GOT THEM JACKHAMMER BLUES

HAMMERED UNDER WATER
HAMMERED UNDER ROCK
 HAMMER ON THE RAILROAD
 YES YES YES
I GOT THEM JACKHAMMER BLUES
HAMMER IN THE MILL
HAMMER IN THE MINE
HAMMERED OUTTA JAIL A HUNDRED TIME
GREAT GOOD GOD
I GOT THEM
 JACKHAMMER BLUES

 JACKHAMMER JACKHAMMER
 WHERE YOU BEEN
BEEN OUTTA CHASIN THEM
 GALS AGAIN
HO HO HO WELL I GOT THEM
 JACKHAMMER BLUES
SEE MY WOMAN
 WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
GRAB MY HAMMER
 AND GO TO TOWN
YES FOLKS
 I GOT THEM JACKHAMMER BLUES

MADE EVERY STATE IN THE
 RED WHITE AND BLUE
LOOKING FOR A JACKHAMMER JOB TO DO
 RIDE EASY
I GOT THEM
 JACKHAMMER BLUES
GOT A JACKHAMMER WOMAN
 JUST SWEET AS PIE
  GONNA HAMMER ON THE HAMMER
  TILL THE DAY I DIE
  LORD GOD HAVE MERCY
  I GOT THEM
  JACKHAMMER BLUES
