Leadbelly, JOHN HENRY

Leadbelly's intoduction from 'Leadbelly Sings For Children' (recorded circa. 1941):
"John Henry was a steel driving man. Well that's mighty fine. He was a double jointed 
I don't guess you knew that.
That's what made him drive so much steel."

D (D5, D6, Dmaj7)
John Henry WAS A newborn baby

A (A5, A6, Amaj7)                             E 
E6, Emaj7)
Sitting down on his mamma's knee
Said that big man turned down that sad old road

D                 A        D           A
It's gonna be the death of me, Lord, Lord
D                  A        D
It's gonna be the death of me,

It's gonna be the death of me, Lord, Lord
It's gonna be the death of me,
