Story behind the song
song written by Merle Travis, inspired by his coal mining father.... when Red neck originally meant wearing a red bandana to support the unionization of the coal industry... it really has nothing to to do w/redneck farmer tans...that was a clever misdirection of the truth of these brave men who worked like slaves to keep american manufacturing running. 16 tons was also what a coal bearing train held when filled.
