Tennessee Ernie Ford. 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 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

Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded "Sixteen Tons" in 1955 as the B-side of his cover of the Moon Mullican standard "You Don't Have to Be a Baby to Cry". With Ford's snapping fingers and a unique clarinet-driven pop arrangement, it quickly became a million seller. It hit Billboard's country music chart in November and held the No. 1 position for ten weeks, then crossed over and held the number 1 position on the pop music chart for eight weeks, besting the competing version by Johnny Desmond. The song has been recorded or performed in concert by a wide variety of musicians: 1955: Sung live by Elvis Presley in his early 1950s concerts, but never recorded

Tennessee Ernie Ford wasn’t the first to record ‘Sixteen Tons’, but he made it his signature song in 1955, and the title track of an album released in 1960. Published on. May 10, 2019. Curiously, Sixteen Tons the album didn’t arrive until 1960, and, even more surprisingly, was not a chart item, even though Ford was in the middle of a ten-year run on TV with his own variety show. Nevertheless, leading off with the title track, it became a vinyl salute to his triumphs of the decade that had just ended. The LP included his earlier country N. s, with ‘Mule Train’ and his own composition ‘The Shot Gun Boogie’. Also included was 1950’s ‘The Cry Of The Wild Goose’, which, like ‘Mule Train’, saw Ford scoring the country hit with a song taken into the pop charts by Frankie Laine
