[Verse 2] I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal And the strawboss said, 'well, bless my soul' [Verse 3] I was born one morning it was drizzlin' rain Fightin' and trouble are my middle name I was raised in the canebreak by an old mama lion Can't no high-tone woman make me walk the line [Verse 4] If ya see me comin', better step aside A lotta men didn't and a lotta men died One fist of iron, the other of steel If the right one don't getcha, then the left one will * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixteen_Tons ============================================================================
