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
