GUEST,open mike Lyr Req: Whoa Mule (Uncle Dave Macon) (8) RE: Lyr Req: Whoa Mule (Uncle Dave Macon) 05 Feb 19


The mule song I remember is one i heard on an old 78 RPM record at the old homestead...i think it was by Chubby Parker... Whoa Mule Whoa
it went on to say: can't you hear them holler, tie a bow knot in the tail or he'll jump through the collar, why don't you turn him on the track, why don't yo let him go? every time I turn around it's Whoa Mule Whoa...Whoa, Mule, Whoa by Chubby Parker, 1927            
Chubby Parker... Whoa Mule Whoa 1927

Whoa Mule Whoa don't you hear him holler,
Tie a bow knot in his tail or he'll jump through the collar,
Why don't you put him on the track, why don't you let him go?
Every time he comes around it's Whoa there Mule Whoa...

Chorus
Riding on a hump back mule, oh, mule, riding on a hump back mule
When I pass her by she winks that rogueish eye
Riding on a hump back mule

Whoa mule whoa, you got them eyes a blinkiní
You switch your tail, you lift your foot, You got me a thinking
Somethingís gonna happen sure, To you or me I know
Every time he looks around itís whoa there mule whoa
        Chorus
Whoa mule whoa He certainly am a sinner
He bit the tail off grand dadís calf and ate if for his dinner
He killed a pig and kicked a cow, Heís certainly on the go
Every time he comes around itís whoa there mule whoa
        Chorus
Whoa mule whoa Iím done with you forever
You ainít no good, you never was, You never could be neither
Youíre gonna die and take a trip To the hot place down below
When old Satan sees you coming in heíll shout Whoa there mule Whoa
Chorus
