Well, good morning, Captain
Good morning to you, Sir
Hey hey yeah

Do you need another mule skinner
Down on your new mud run?
Hey hey yeah


Well I'm a lady mule skinner
From down old Tennessee way
Hey hey, I come from Tennessee

I can make any mule listen
Or I won't accept your pay
Hey hey I won't take your pay


Well, hey hey, little water boy
Won't you bring your water 'round?
Hey hey

If you don't like your job
Well, you can throw your bucket down
Throw it down boy, throw it down


Well, I've been working down in Georgia
At a greasy spoon cafe
Hey, 've been working in Georgia
Just to let a no good man

Call every cent of my pay
Hey hey and I'm sick of it
And wanna be a mule skinner
