About: Johnny Cash - Sixteen Tons


Johny Cash was awesome, but I like the original version from Merle Travis more.

Union proud.
He looks weird with a stache
502 people are bourgeoise failures
Es fielen ganze Ernten aus
Eure Worte sind groß, eure Motive spürbar klein
Great version of this song.
Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

You load sixteen tons, 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

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 straw boss said "Well, a-bless my soul"

You load sixteen tons, 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

I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
Can't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line

You load sixteen tons, 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

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

You load sixteen tons, 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
J.C a true legend
Boi dead yet
Johnny Cash's voice makes you believe what he's saying
i didnt know JR was a 70's porn star.
Original is much better :/ sorry
Rare time when Cash doesn't beat earlier versions. Sounds like nobody gave a shit
Here because they simply knew the song..?
AND NOT FUCKING CAUSE THEY WANT THAT AMAZON SHIPPING?!

Phew sorry..I gotta get me some Tegridy.
nice cover
sorry but the original is miles better than that, even if it's johnny cash...
Just so you know this isn't the South park version. Search for Ernie Ford

You're welcome
