Sixteen Tons Lyrics

(Travis)

-Solo-

Some people say, a man is made out of mud
A poor man's made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

Refrain:
You load sixteen tons, and what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

-Solo-

I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said, well, a-bless my soul

Refrain

-Solo-

I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
Raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
Can't no high-toned woman make me walk the line

Refrain

-Solo-

If you see me comin', better step aside
A lotta men didn't and a lotta men died
One fist of iron, and other of steel
If the right one don't get you, then the left one will

Refrain

-Solo-
