Whoa Mule

  • [Chorus]
    Whoa mule, whoa mule, we're dirty but were dreaming
    Whoa mule, whoa mule, we'll both get there someday

    All you ramblers, you silk tongue gamblers
    Listen to my tale
    It won't take long, to sing you my song
    Full of trouble and despair
    So fair thee well, you troubadours
    Whose pockets have no lining
    I can tell you that all pastures stay green
    But you know that I'd be lying


    My own true love is a raven haired girl
    Whose lives way back down the hollow
    I take her by her lily white hair
    And into the woods we wonder
    Her daddy was a river man
    As mad as a hatter
    Her mama she's as soft as snow
    But that don't really matter


    Sometimes a road is rocky and hard
    Full of dangers unrelenting
    Just take great care to follow your stars
    Let the good times come a plenty
