Am G F E x2 
Am G F E x2 
Am D

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

Chorus : 
Am      G     F           E
Sixteen tons, what do you get?
 Am         G         F         E
Another day older and deeper in debt
      Am                             D           Dsus4
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
  Am
I owe my soul to the company store

riff 

Am G F E x2 

      Am       G                F          E
I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine
  Am           G            F             E
I Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
  Am                     D
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
        Am
And the straw-boss said, "Well, bless my soul"

[Chorus]

riff
solo (chorus without lyrics)

      Am       G               F         E
I was born one morning, it was drizzling rain
Am           G           F         E
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
      Am                         D           
I was raised in the canebrake by an old mama lion
      Am
Can't no high-toned woman make me walk the line

[Chorus]

riff

Am G F E x2 

       Am     G          F         E
If you see me coming, better step aside
Am           G       F          E
A lot of men didn't, lot of men died
Am                    D           
One fist of iron, the other of steel
   Am
If the right one don't get you then the left one will

Chorus : 
Am      G     F           E
Sixteen tons, what do you get?
 Am         G         F         E
Another day older and deeper in debt
      Am                             D           Dsus4    D   Dsus4
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goooooooooooooooo
  Am                 E
I owe my soul to the company store
