Sixteen Tons (十六噸) - B.B. King

Some people says the man's made out of mud,

 

Or the man's made of muscle and blood

 

Muscle and blood and skin and bone,

A mind that's week and a back that's strong

You load sixteen tons, so what do you get,

 

Another day older and deeper in debt

So, St. Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go,

I owe my soul to the company store

 

I was born one morning when the sun didn't shine,

 

Picked up my shovel and I went to the mine

I loaded sixteen ton of number nine coal,

The straw-boss said, "God-dog let's my soul"

You load sixteen tons and, what do you get,

Another day older and deeper in debt

So, St. Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go,

I owe my soul to the company store

 

I was born one mornin' when it was drizzle in rain,

Fightin' and shootin' is my middle name

Born in a canebreak

By an ol' mama hound,

No high-tone mama can make me walk the line

I load sixteen tons, and what do you get,

Another day older and deeper in debt

So, St. Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go,

I owe my soul to the company store

 

You see me comin' you better step aside,

 

A lot of men didn't and a whole lot of them died

One fist of iron and one of steal,

The right one don't get you, boy, the left one will

So, load sixteen ton, what do you get,

Another day older and deeper in debt

So, St. Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go,

I owe my soul to the company store

 

I owe my soul to the company store
