There once was a man named John Henry. John Henry was a steel-driving man. He was the biggest, strongest and fastest man ever to work the rail road. One day a machine was created to put John Henry and others like him out of work. John Henry wasn't ready to stop. So, John Henry decided to fight the machine, and guess who won? Soon after this folkloric battle, poor old John Henry collapsed and died. But John Henry has not been forgotten.
