Lyrics of Sixteen Tons

Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Of muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong
You load sixteen tons what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cos I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
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
You load sixteen tons what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cos I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
I was born one mornin' it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
Cain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line
You load sixteen tons what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cos I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
If you see me comin' better step aside
A lotta men didn't a lotta men died
One fist of iron the other of steel
If the right one don't a-get you then the left one will
You load sixteen tons what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cos I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
