Erie Canal

I've got a mule, and her name is Sal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal.
She's a good old worker and a good old pal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal.

We've hauled some barges in our day
Filled with lumber, coal and hay.
And we know every inch of the way from
Albany to Buffalo.

Low bridge, everybody down.
Low bridge ‘cause we're coming to a town.
And you'll always know your neighbor, you'll always know your pal,
If you've ever navigated on the Erie Canal.

We’d better look around for a job, old gal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal.
‘Cause you bet your life I'd never part with Sal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal.

Get up there mule, here comes a lock.
We'll make Rome ‘bout 6 o'clock.
One more trip and back we'll go,
Right back home to Buffalo.

Low bridge, everybody down…
