Sixteen Miles!

Posted Jun 27 2011 12:00am
Do you ever get a song stuck in your head and no matter what you do it won't go away?

I think they're called earworms.

I just did a Google Image search for earworms and Mr. T showed up
It made me laugh so it's going on the blog....


ANYWAYS....

I have had the song Sixteen Tons in my head since Saturday...I heard it on the radio during my shower after my sixteen mile long run...so I thought it was a funny coincidence.

Now, it just won't go away! Maybe putting it on the blog will help. If you haven't heard this song before, you have to listen to it. (And then maybe it will get stuck in your head instead of mine!) Classic country at it's best!

Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford
Some people say a man is made outta mud A poor man's made outta muscle and bloodMuscle and blood and skin and bonesA mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong
You load sixteen tons, what do you getAnother day older and deeper in debtSaint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goI owe my soul to the company store
I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shineI picked up my shovel and I walked to the mineI loaded sixteen tons of number nine coalAnd the straw boss said "Well, a-bless my soul"
You load sixteen tons, what do you getAnother day older and deeper in debtSaint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goI owe my soul to the company store
I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rainFightin' and trouble are my middle nameI was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lionCain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line
You load sixteen tons, what do you getAnother day older and deeper in debtSaint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goI owe my soul to the company store
If you see me comin', better step asideA lotta men didn't, a lotta men diedOne fist of iron, the other of steelIf the right one don't a-get youThen the left one will
You load sixteen tons, what do you getAnother day older and deeper in debtSaint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goI owe my soul to the company store


What songs get stuck in your head? How do you get them out????
