 Am                      F         E
Some people say a man is made outta mud
 Am                     F          E
A poor man's made outta muscle an' blood
Am                   F        Dm
Muscle an' blood an' skin an' bone
Am                       G           Am
A mind that's weak and a back that's strong

chorus: 
Am                        F          E
You load sixteen tons an' what do ya get?
Am                    F         E
Another day older an' deeper in debt
Am                                  F       Dm
Saint Peter don't ya call me 'cause I can't go
Am                   E       Am
I owe my soul to the company store  

Am                              F          E
I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine
Am                        F           E
Picked up my shovel and I went to the mine
Am                      F          Dm
Loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
Am                         G        Am
The straw boss said, "Well, Bless my soul!"

chorus

Am                             F        E
I was born one morning it was drizzlin' rain
Am                       F         E
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
Am                            F        Dm
Raised in the canebrake by an old mama lion
Am                               G        Am
Ain't no high-tone woman make me walk the line

chorus

Am                            F      E
If ya see me coming ya better step aside
Am                       F         E
A lotta men didn't and a lotta men died
Am                             F        Dm
With one fist of iron an' the other of steel
Am                                     G        Am
If the right one don't get ya then the left one will.




My first submission here or anywhere, please feel free to give correction or improvements.
This is more like a mix of Johnny Cash and the original, I tweaked it for when its just me and 
my acoustic to sound better solo.
