lyrics

i will sing now that the work is done
i will sing now that the work is done
i’ve been swinging this hammer
since the rising of the sun
i will sing now that the work is done

there’s a pretty girl waiting there for me
there’s a pretty girl waiting there for me
there’s a pretty girl and she’s so fine
A pretty girl, she’s all mine
there’s a pretty girl waiting there for me

i will sing now that the work is done
i will sing now that the work is done
i’ve been swinging this hammer
since the rising of the sun
i will sing now that the work is done

oh, father! don’t you cry for me
oh, father! don’t you cry for me
oh, my father and my mother
my sisters and my brother
don’t you cry for me

i will sing now that the work is done
i will sing now that the work is done
i’ve been swinging this hammer
since the rising of the sun
i will sing now that the work is done

i am waiting on the last train home
i am waiting on the last train home
i am waiting on the last train
to take me from this driving rain
i am waiting on the last train home

i will sing now that the work is done
i will sing now that the work is done
i’ve been swinging this hammer
since the rising of the sun
i will sing now that the work is done
