16 Tons Lyrics

I was born one morning when the sun did't shine I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal and the straw-boss said well bless my soul -CH. you load sixteen tons and what do you get another day older and deeper in debt saint peter don't you call me cause I can't go I owe my soul to the company store--vs#2I was born one morning it was drizzling rain fighting and trouble are my middle names I was raised in the cane-break by an old mamma lion ain't no high tone woman can make me walk the line.
CHO-VS3--If you see me coming you'd better step aside, alot of men did'nt and alot of men died I've got one fist of iron and the other of steel, if the right one don't get you then the left one will --CHO
