John Henry, aka “The Ballad of John Henry” is sometimes played as an instrumental, although we prefer the sung version for the story it tells about John Henry, a real-life steel-driving man and African American folk hero. “According to legend, John Henry’s prowess as a steel-driver was measured in a race against a steam-powered rock drilling machine, a race that he won only to die in victory with hammer in hand as his heart gave out from stress.” (Wikipedia)
