American Ballads and Folk Songs
Chorus:
Low bridge, everybody down; Low bridge, I've got the finest mule in town. If you're looking for trouble, better stay away, She's the only fighting donkey on the Erie Canal.
I don't have to call when I want my Sal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal,
She trots from the stall like a good old gal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
I eat my meals with Sal each day,
I eat beef and she eats hay,
She ain't so slow if you want to know,
She put the "Buff" in Buffalo.
Chorus:
Low bridge, everybody down,
Low bridge, I've got the finest mule in town.
Eats a bale of hay for dinner, and on top of that my Sal
Tries to drink up all the water in the Erie Canal.
You'll soon hear them sing all about my gal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal,
It's a darned fine ditty 'bout my darn fool Sal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
Oh, any band will play it soon,
Darned fool words and darned fool tunej
You'll hear it sung everywhere you go,
From Mexico to Buffalo.
Chorus:
Low bridge, everybody down,
Low bridge, Pve got the finest mule in town.
She's a perfect, perfect lady, and she blushes like a gal
If she hears you sing about her and the Erie Canal.
