Oh Henry...

About that dude who competed against a machine. This post is about John Henry and also the numerous songs that retell the legend.

Let's see, the first I ever heard of the legend was from the Disney cartoon that had a version of the song, but sadly no singing inanimate objects. You could interpret the legend on many levels such as race and technology. If you really don't feel like clicking on the link, all the songs are different in some way or another such as the wife's name, the color dress she wore, or what led up to the contest. It's kinda like the stories where the fish was 'this' big changed after a few times into the fish was 'THIS' big.

Fish? What fish?
