Song A Week #18 I'm The Hammer Jeff Powers

This song is an excuse to do some mean finger picking. I heard another singer songwriter Paul Thorn tell a story and he had this funny line in his song...He was an ex boxer who had the pleasure (depends how you look at it) to fight the legendary boxer Roberto Duran...I remember seeing the fight and Thorn did real good until Duran knocked him out. Anyway he said Duran told him after the fight he'd rather be the Hammer than the Nail...if I remember the story correctly. I don't think I stole his thunder by using this line and like I said it's more about the guitar playing. Sorry the mic was peaking out and there is unwanted distortion on the track.

Ain’t Gonna Back Down© 2013
                                          music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Ain't gonna back down
Ain't Gonna back down
I'm warning you now
Ain't foolin' around
It's hittin' the ground

Gonna hear two sounds
Gonna hear two sounds
You're gonna hear
Mee hittin' you
You hittin' the ground

(cause)I'm the hammer
You're the nail
That's the way it is
You caught a tiger by the tail

[Inst Break]

We're gonna throwdown
We're gonna throwdown
I'm warning you now
Ain't foolin' around
It's hittin' the ground

Gonna hear two sounds
Gonna hear two sounds
You're gonna hear
Me hittin' you
You hittin' the ground

(cause)I'm the hammer
You're the nail
That's the way it is
You caught a tiger by the tail

[Inst Break]
