Hammertowne at The 13th Annual Rudy Fest Bluegrass Festival in Grayson, Ky. June 19 – 22, 2013

Doug Burchett, Chaston Carroll, David Carroll, Brent Pack, and Scott Tackett

“Dave come to rehearsal one night and he had an idea for a song. There’s a story behind this song. How many of you ever heard of an Iver Johnson shotgun. An old old Sears and Roebuck style shotgun. Dave’s uncle years and years ago got into a tussle with a man. Long story short there was a little bit of a killing taken place there. Dave wanted to write the song about it but he didn’t want to tell it in a typical fashion. So he decided he wanted to write this song if the gun could talk this is what the gun could say. And me and him and Doug sat down and wrote this one day.” Scott Tackett

Iver Johnson Is My Name

by David Carroll, Scott Tackett and Doug Burchett

My days spent just Hanging Round
No more nights out on the town
One mans death is anothers shame
Iver Johnson is my name

Hammertowne’s first album which includes Iver Johnson Is My Name

Ive spent my life out in the hills
Fed the family with the game I’ve killed
For the things I’ve done I’ll take the blame
Iver Johnson is my name

For the things Ive done I’ll take the blame
Iver Johnson is my name

I was born of cold blue steel
I strike fear to this day still
I’ve spilled blood to earn my fame
Iver Johnson is my name

A fickle heart and a jealous mind
Look around and your bound to find
That your gonna lose if you play the game
Iver Johnson is my name

Your gonna lose if you play the game
Iver Johnson is my name

There was nothing I could do
He pointed me his aim was true
The shot rang and out and lifes were changed
Iver Johnson is my name

Now one lies beneath the ground
And the story’s told for miles around
Forever on this wall I’ll hang
Iver Johnson is my name

Forever on this wall I will hang
Iver Johnson is my name

Iver Johnson is my name
Iver Johnson is my name
