There was a band from Denver several yrs back called Sixteen Horsepower. They took thier name from an folk song about a man that got so overwieght they had to get 16 horses to pull him to his grave. Does anyone on here know what song that is in?
Also hello to everyone I have not been on here in a while. I am having trouble viewing the posts and I am not sure why. The page just shows blanks where there should be posts. Anyway I hope to be back on here as soon as I can start viewing it. I am on another computer I am not normally on and everything shows up with this computer.

Hi,

This is probably not it: (I'm just sparing others the trouble of checking this one.)
Old Joe Clark has a verse about a team of sixteen horses, though it's not in the the Digital Tradition. But as it's also not about a burial, it doesn't fit the question.

A burial with sixteen horses, BTW, is something heads of state sometimes got.


(Next time you see a blank page on Mudcat, try selecting the whole page. If it turns out that there is in fact text, but it's just invisible, you might want to check your browser settings, especially the default text/font colour.)

Bye

This probably won't help but there is also a reference to "16" in an old blues song entitled "Mystery Train" which was also covered by Elvis in the mid-50s:

The train I ride is sixteen coaches long
Yeah, the train I ride is 16 coaches long
Big black train took my baby and gone...

I think that Big Arthur Cruddup wrote it but not sure...

Yep. There is a song of theirs that contains a reference to 16 horses here. I feel sure I have heard a blues song that may have been the name source that you seek; but I'm sorry to say I can't recall enough of it to search it out.

Thank you I appreciate it. I am still having bad trouble seeing the posts on here. When I click a blank space the posts come up but I can't see it otherwise. It is crazy that is why I haven't been on here in a while. I will figure it out though. I appreciate it ya'll
