(24X) Sixteen Tons

I was born in a drivin' rain
Fightin and Trouble been my middle name
When I come round better step aside
Well a lot of men didn't and a lot of men died

Some folks say the mans word is made out of mud
He forgot that hes made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that's weak will make a war that's wrong

(chorus)
24 by 16 tons and what do ya get
Another lost soldier and deeper in death
St. Peter dontcha call me cause I cant go
I owe my soul to the Al Qaqaa store

When the man got sworn the sun didn't shine
Along came a plan that worked in his mind
They lost (24x)16 tons of RDX gold
And the man just said, 'well bless my soul'

(chorus)

So if you see me votin better step aside
A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died
Got one fist of iron and the other of steel
Cause if the man don't get it then the people will

(chorus x2)
