Em    				C		 B7
Some people say a man is 	made out of 	mud
Em    				C		 B7
A poor man's made out of 	muscle and 	blood
Em			 Am
Muscle and blood and 	skin and bones
C				 B7		 Em
A mind that's weak and a	back that's 	strong.


Chorus:
	Em    			 C		 B7
	You load sixteen tons 	what do you 	get
	Em    			 C		 B7
        Another day older and 	deeper in 	 debt
	Em					 
	Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause 	I can't go
	C			 B7		Em
	I owe my soul to the 	company 	store.

Riff :

Em    				  C		 B7
I was born one morning when the  sun didn't 	shine
I picked up my shovel and I       walked to the  mine
Em				 
I loaded sixteen tons of       number nine coal
C				 B7		Em
And the straw boss said well a 	bless my	soul.



Chorus :
	Em    			 C		 B7
	You load sixteen tons 	what do you 	get
	Em    			 C		 B7
        Another day older and 	deeper in 	 
	Em					 Am
	Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause 	I can't go
	C			  B7		Em
	I owe my soul to the 	company 	store.

Riff :

Em    				 C		  B7
I was born one morning it was 	drizzling 	rain.
Em    			          C		 B7
Fighting and trouble are 	 my middle       name.
Em					 Am
I was raised in the cane break by an 	old mama lion.
C					 B7		Em 
Ain't no high tone woman make me 	walk the 	line.


Chorus & Riff:


Em    				 C		  B7
If you see me coming better 	step 		a side
A lot of men didn't a 		 lot o’ men 	 died
Em				 Am
One fist of iron the 		other of steel
C					    B7	 	Em 
If the right one don't get you then the  left one  	will.


Chorus & Riff:
