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

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

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

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

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

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

Am             G              F         E  
I was born one morning in the drizzling rain
Am           G           F         E  
Fighting and trouble are my middle name
Am                  G               F        E  
I was raised in the canebreak by an old mama hound
Am                 G           F       E  
Ain't no high-tone woman gonna push me around.

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