Words from Johnny Cash's "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer."

Two other lyrics I thought of illustrating from the song were, "Did the Lord say that machines oughtta take the place of the livin'?" or "Do engines get rewarded for their steam?"

We need to celebrate and support those who are still capable of and choose to do things themselves and work by hand. It's sad seeing large companies steal idea, and then mass produce cheaper versions. Technology can be very useful but learn how to utilize it, don't be consumed or replaced by it! You pay an artist for their vision not their labor.
