Mule Skinner Blues

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album Georgia Sunshine (1970).

Good mornin', Captain
Good mornin' to you, Shine
Do you need a new mule skinner
Down on your new mud line?

Hey, hey, hey
Gonna do a little bit a new skinner blues

Well, I'm goin' to town, honey
What do you want me to bring you back?
Bring me a pint of cold hard booze
Yeah, and a Johny B Stetson hat

Hey, hey, hey
Gonna do a little bit a new skinner blues

Well, I smell your bread a burnin' woman
Go and turn your damper down
Well, if you ain't got no damper woman
You better turn your bread around

Hey, hey, hey
Gonna do a little bit a new skinner blues

Here comes Chet Atkins, good mornin', son

Oh hey, there little water boy
Put your feet out onto the ground
Bring back that bucket of water, son
Bring that bucket around
Lord, if you don't like your job
Then lay that bucket down

Well, I'm an old mule skinner haw
From down Kentucky way
And I can make any mule listen
Or I won't accept your pay

Hey, hey, hey
Gonna do a little bit a new skinner blues

Take it home children
Mule skiner, mule skiner blues
Mule skiner, mule skiner blues
