Throw that Hammer Down   by Billy Dean  
G                                                   C                 G  
I was framin houses in Houston one August afternoon  
  
When the formans wife pulled up in her Lincoln and      
       D                                            G  
She said I've been lookin for you the ol man went home early  
             C                                      G  
Do you want to take a ride to town I said I guess it couldn't do no harm  
    D                           G  
I threw my hammer down   
G                                                           C                   
            G  
We were shootin staight tequila when the forman came stormin in   
G                                                       D  
He said Honey now didn't I warn ya what I'd do if I caught you again   
                 G                                       C  
Well she pulled out her little pistol she fired and he hit the ground  
           G  
 She grabed my arm we jumped into that lincoln and  
    D                         G  
 I put that hammer down (Chorus)  
C                     G                                               F  
Hammer Down Hammer down don't look back it's to late now  
        C                                     Bb  
Ain't nothin you can do about it anyhow   
       C                               Bb       D          G                    
            
just put that hammer just put that hammer down  
  
G                                            C                    G  
I heard the sierins moanin just east of New Orleans  
                                                     D  
She cryed out to the trooper thank God you rescued me  
                  G  
When they draged me into that courtroom  
    C                                     G  
I knew were I was bound that ol judge threw the book at me   
               D  
then he threw his hammer down( Chorus)  
           G                                            C                 G  
On a chaingang down in Houston one August afternoon  
                                                        D  
I see that same ol Lincoln and at the wheel theres a brand new fool   
              G                                               C  
then the warden taps my shoulder he says son quite your foolin around   
    G                        D                            G  
In 99 years you can lay that hammer down (Chorus)
