Story

These lyrics rang a bell with me. I knew very well a man who worked on the railroad tracks, swung a hammer and sung songs while he worked.

Lyrics

Steel goin' down, under my old hammer; forty four years I've sung 'em my song. Steel goin' down, under my old hammer; forty four years I've carried it along.

In the evening burns a light soft and low; in that little shanty where I long to go.  Steel goin' down, under my old hammer; I'm gettin' weary, I'm goin' home.
