Lyrics

  • When my baby she left me,
  • Left me with a mule to ride,
  • When my baby she left me,
  • Left me with a mule to ride,
  • When that train left the station,
  • That old mule laid down and died.
  • Just give my baby,
  • A brand new twenty dollar bill,
  • I done give my baby.
  • A brand new twenty dollar bill,
  • If that don't get her back,
  • I swear this old shotgun will.
  • Standing down by the landing,
  • Big old board on the door,
  • Standing down by the landing,
  • Big old board on the door,
  • When I say goodbye,
  • Won't see that girl no more.
  • Look out baby,
  • Gonna spread the news,
  • Look out baby,
  • Got to spread the news,
  • Treat me so bad,
  • I'm buried with these blues.
  • When my baby she left me,
  • Left me with a mule to ride,
  • When my baby she left me,
  • Left me with a mule to ride,
  • When that train left the station,
  • That old mule laid down and died.
  • Yeah............
