Ball Peen Hammer
Joe Bonamassa Lyrics


I wanna go there, I wanna climb
Now I don't know about no law, I don't see no crime
Ain't no reason, ain't no rest
I wanna get down to the woman and get undressed

And I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't wait to see them walls falling down

So tell me Jesus, why they run
Is it by the weight of the woman, the weight of the gun?
Got fifty minutes now and I just don't care
I'm gonna take this off already when I get there

And I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't wait to see them walls falling down
And I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't wait to see them walls falling down

No where tomorrow, a Sunday rhyme
You know all good things come in their due time
Put 'The Ball Peen Hammer', 'Right through' That Door'
And I don't pretend to understand no more

I can't stand it and I can't stand it
I can't wait to see them walls falling down
I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't wait to see them walls falling down

Chris [Whitley] was a buddy of mine. I toured with him. We banged on Nationals together. I miss him dearly. So when I see a great talent such as Bonamassa learn on of Chris' songs and perform it in his own interpretation and tribute...I really appreciate that. There will only be one Chris Whitley. And because Joe mentions him, maybe some people will check out Chris' music. It's amazing the fan base he's gotten since he passed away. So, let it build. And hats off to Bonamassa for this.

Honestly dude after seeing joe mentioned him(Chris) I’ve not stopped listening to him what a phenomenal writer, player and singer

Stevie Simpson - One Bloke One Mandolin

One of my favourite songs. Loved Chris' music and love what Joe has done here. CHEERS !!

David Price

His Daughter Trixie has a different vibe but has a lot of her dad's mojo .
She is magic just like her dad was. If only he had lived to see how great she would become.
I wish I could hear them doing a song like Strong Blood together .
RIP CHRIS , you are missed.

Richard Jones

I started listening to Chris when 'Living with the Law' came out I never stopped. I was lucky enough to see him 3 times in London. So missed.

Now thats a great sounding acoustic in the hands of a a very talented player. Can't get any better than this.

Florian Späth

Joe's guitar playing is out of this world but he is also a hell of a singer!

Best song ever.  Great tribute to Chris Whitley.  This version is almost as good as the one on Joe's Live at the Vienna Operahouse cd, if that's even possible!

Couldn't agree more
