MULE SKINNER BLUES

Good morning captain
Good morning son
Good morning captain
Good morning son
Do you need another mule skinner
Out on your new road line

Well, I like to work
I'm rolling all the time
Lord, I like to work
Boy,I'm rolling all the time
I can pop my initials
Right on a mule's behind

Well, it's hey little water boy
Bring your water 'round
Lord, it's hey little water boy
Bring your water 'round
And if you don't like your job
Just set that water bucket down

I work out on the new road
From a dollar and a dime a day
Lord, I work out on the new road
I make a dollar and a dime a day
I've got three women on Saturday night
Waiting to draw my pay

Well, I'm going to town honey
What can I bring you back
Well, I'm going to town, baby
What can I bring you back
Just bring a pint of good rye
And a John B.Stetson hat

Lord, it's raining here and it's
Storming on the deep blue sea
Lord, it's raining here and it's
Storming on the deep blue sea
Can't no blonde headed woman
Make a monkey out for me

If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
Just throw your good gal out the window
Let your house just burn on down

Well, I'm leaving here and I
Ain't gonna take no clothes
I'm leaving here and I
Ain't gonna take no clothes
There may be good times in this old town
But it's better on down the road
