This one's for you, SRMTB:

.mp3  -->   "Take This Hammer Whup" -- Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee (1977)

I acknowledge something vile in co-opting a chain gang song to apply to planning to quit (or celebrating quitting) a job. It's only like that the way the torture of (say) some babe is like real torture. Which is, you know, pretty much not. But a little. Some.

Best part of the song: the extra beat. The stolen moment. One tiny extra bit of respite.
