Am F E Some people say a man is made outta mud Am F E A poor man's made outta muscle 'n blood... Am Dm F Muscle an' blood an' skin an' bone Am E Am A mind that's weak and a back that's strong Am F E cho: You load sixteen tons an' whaddya get? Am F E Another day older an' deeper in debt Am Dm F Saint Peter doncha call me 'cause I can't go Am E Am I owe my soul to the company store Riff: Am F E I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine Am F E Picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine Am Dm F Loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal Am E Am And the strawboss said, "Well, Bless my soul!" Chorus & Riff: Am F E I was born one morning in the drizzlin' rain Am F E Fightin' and trouble are my middle name Am Dm F I was raised in the canebreak by an' ol' mama lion Am E Am Ain't no high-tone woman make me walk the line. Am F E If ya hear me a-comin' ya better step aside Am F E A lotta men didn't an' a lotta men died Am Dm F With one fist of iron an' the other of steel Am E Am If the right one don' getcha then the left one will. Chorus & Riff:
