Hello, my name is Johnny Cash and I had a song about John Henry.
John Henry was a black man and he was a steel driving man for the railroad and no one could drive more spikes than John Henry, cause he was a man.

Well, the railroad bought a new steam engine to drive spikes and challenged John Henry and John took the challenge. They worked and worked but John Henry beat the steam engine but it killed him to do it. He died with that hammer is his hand lord lord but John Henry was a steel driving man.

Yes, I would like to know if it was the same John Henry that I knew back in the day. Does any one know what happened and if it is true? Probably the same one you r talking about New Baden, 1982 grad. sounds about right
