Merle Haggard Mule Skinner Blues (Blue Yodel No. 8) Lyrics

Good morning Captain good morning Sun
Do you need another mule skinner out on your new mud line
I like to work I'm rolling all the time
I can carve my initials on a mule's behind
Hey little water boy bring that water round
If you don't like your job set that water bucket down
Walkin' on the good roads dollar and half a day
My good gal's waitin' on Saturday night just to draw my pay
I'm goin' to town honey what you want me to bring you back
Bring a pint of booze and a John B Stetson hat
I smell your bread a burnin' turn your damper down
If you ain't got a damper good gal turn your bread around
