16 Tons Songtext

I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I hauled sixteen tons of number 9 coal
And the straw boss said, "Well, bless my soul"

(Chorus:)
You haul sixteen tons, whadaya 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

Chorus

Born one morning it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in a canebrake by an old mama lion
And no high-toned woman make me walk the line

Chorus

See me comin' better step aside
A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died
I got one fist of iron and the other of steel
And if the right one don't get ya, the left one will

Chorus

Born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I hauled sixteen tons of number 9 coal
And the straw boss said, "Well, bless my soul"

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

Chorus

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

I was born one mornin' and 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 bless my soul!"

.....you loaded...

(Chorus)

I was born one mornin' it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in a cane-brake by an old mama lion
Can't no high-toned woman make me walk no line

(Chorus)

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

(Chorus)

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