[Intro]
Em      Am       B7        Em


[Verse 1]
     Em                  C7          B7
Some people say a man is made out of mud
      Em                      C7         B7
Well, a poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Em                 Am               Em
Muscle and blood, skin and bone, a mind
                  C7           B7
That's weak but a back that's strong


[Chorus]
         Em                C7      B7
You load sixteen tons and whaddaya get?
 Em                   C7        B7
Another day older and deeper in dept
     Em
Saint Peter don'tcha call me 'Cause 
 Am            Em                B7      Em
I can't go, I owe my soul to the Company Store


[Verse 2]
       Em                       C7          B7
I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine
   Em                       C7           B7
I picked up my shovel and I went to the mines
         Em                   Am
I loaded sixteen tons of that number nine coal
         Em                      C7       B7
Til the Straw boss said, "Well,  bless my soul"


[Chorus]
          Em              C7       B7
You load sixteen tons and whaddaya get?
  Em                  C7        B7
Another day older and deeper in dept
      Em
Saint Peter don'tcha call me 'Cause 
Am            Em                 B7      Em
I can't go, I owe my soul to the Company Store


[Verse 3]
           Em                       C7    B7
So if you see me coming you better step aside
  Em                       C7        B7
A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died
             Em                   Am
I've got one fist of iron and the other of steel
           Em                                 C7        B7
And if the right don't get you then the left one will


[Chorus]
         Em               C7       B7
You load sixteen tons and whaddaya get?
 Em                   C7        B7
Another day older and deeper in dept
       Em
Saint Peter don'tcha call me 'Cause 
Am           Em                  B7       Em
I can't go, I owe my soul to the Company Store


[Outro]
Am Em B7  Em
