lyrics

Some people say a man is made out of mud
A poor man's made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's weak and a back that's strong

You load the 16 tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in dept
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one morning, the sun didn't shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded 16 tons of #9 coal
and the straw boss said well bless my soul

[...]

I was born one morning, it was drizzling rain,
Fighting and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in The Cain, break by an old mama lion
Ain't no high-tone woman make me walk the line

[...]

If you see me coming, better step aside
A lot of men didn't, a lot of men died
One fist of iron, the other of steel
If the right one don't get you then the left one will

[...]
