Em C B7 Some people say a man is made out of mud Em C B7 A poor man's made out of muscle and blood Em Am Muscle and blood and skin and bones C B7 Em A mind that's weak and a back that's strong. Chorus: Em C B7 You load sixteen tons what do you get Em C B7 Another day older and deeper in debt Em Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go C B7 Em I owe my soul to the company store. Riff : Em C B7 I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine Em I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal C B7 Em And the straw boss said well a bless my soul. Chorus : Em C B7 You load sixteen tons what do you get Em C B7 Another day older and deeper in Em Am Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go C B7 Em I owe my soul to the company store.
