LYRICS

Muleskinner Blues (Mule Skinner's Blues)

Good morning captain, good morning son
Ye, good morning captain, good morning son
Do you need another muleskinner
Out on your new mud run

Well I’m a workin' on that new road, dollar and a dime a day
Ye, workin' on that new road, dollar and a dime a day
I got three women waiting on a Saturday night
Just to draw my pay

T for Texas, T for Tennessee,
Ye, T for Texas T for Tennessee
And I love old Thelma
But she made a fool of me

Ye, good morning captain, good morning son
Ye, good morning captain, good morning son
Do you need another muleskinner
Out on your new mud run

Hey there little water boy, bring your bucket round
Ye, hey there little water boy, bring your bucket round
And If you don't like your jobr
Put your water bucket down
