Lyrics: 

Sledgehammer Blues

Sledgehammer Stan was a sledgehammer man
Was born with a sledgehammer in his hand
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues
Stan built new railroads with a wretched crew
He built a levee and a dam or two
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues

Stan hammered on boulders at Rocky Butte
Trains didn’t even give old Stan a hoot
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues
Hammered for the hydro works day and night
Working so folks could have electric light
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues

Sledgehammer Stan was born in Nebraska
Hammered from deep south up to Alaska
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues
Stan built bridges and shafts for the gold mines
A good man except for his bad jail times
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues

Sledgehammer, sledgehammer, where did you go
Been chasin’ wild dreams down the Ohio
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues
Sledgehammer man from a Nebraska town
Hammer them rocks til a-way past sundown
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues

Stan hammered in the rain and did as told
He hammered on the veins that held no gold
And Stan got them sledgehammer blues
He hammered hard and couldn’t be outdone
Until one day the sledgehammer had won
Stan died from them dreadful sledgehammer blues
