mule train lyrics – gene autry

(j. lange, h. heath & f. glickman)

mule train!, (haw!), mule train! (*)
clipity-clopin’ over hill and plain
seems as how they never stop
clipity-clop, clipity-clop
clipity-clipity, clipity-clipity
clipity-clopin along.

there’s a plug of chawin’ tabaccer
for a rancher in corona
a guitar for a cowboy
way out in arizona
a dress of calico
for a pretty navajo
git along mule, git along.

mule train!, (haw!), mule train! (*)
clipity-clopin’ along the mountain range
soon they’re gonna reach the top
clipity-clop, clipity-clop
clipity-clipity, clipity-clipity
clipity-clopin’ along.

there’s some cotton, thread and needles
for the folks a-way out yonder
a shovel for a miner
who left his home to wander
some rhumatism pills
for the settlers in the hills
git along mule, git along.

mule train!, (haw!), mule train! (*)
clipity-clopin’ thru the wind and the rain
they’ll be goin’ till they drop
clipity-clop, clipity-clop
clipity-clipity, clipity-clipity
clipity-clopin’ along.

there’s a letter full of sadness
it’s black around the border
a pair of boots for someone
who had ’em made to order
a bible in the pack
for the reverend mr. black
git along mule, git along…
