Sixteen Tons

(Merle Travis)

	  		Intro: Am      F       E   E7   Am   

V1.   
     Am           F      Dm         E         
Some people say a man is made out of mud,    
   Am         F         Dm         E   
a poor man's made outa muscle an' blood,   
 Am         F         Dm       E         
Muscle an' blood an' skin an' bone,    
   Am          F          E7          E   
a mind that's weak and a back that's strong.

E E7 Am F Dm E You load sixteen tons an' whaddya get? Am F Dm E another day older an' deeper in debt; Am F Dm Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go, Am F E E7 Am I owe my soul to the company sto'.

Am F E E7 Am V2. Am F Dm E I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine, Am F Dm E I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine; Am F Dm E I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal, Am F Dm E an' the straw boss said, "Well, bless my soul!" Chorus V3. Am F Dm E I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain; Am F Dm E fightin' and trouble are my middle name; Am F Dm E I was raised in the cane break by an' ol' mama lion, Am F Dm E ain't no high-tone woman make me walk the line. V4. Am F Dm E If you see me a-comin', better step aside. Am F Dm E A lot o' men didn't; a lot 'o men died; Am Dm One fist of iron an' the other of steel? Am F Am If the right one don't get you then the left one will. Outro: E E7 Am F Dm E You load sixteen tons an' whaddya get? Am F Dm E another day older an' deeper in debt; Am F Dm Saint Peter, don't you call me 'cause I can't go, (Slowly) Am Am7 F I o-owe my s-o-o-oul; Dm7 E E7 Am to the company sto'. Am F E E7 Am
