I'm the Man that Rode the Mule 'Round the World

I'm the Man that Rode the Mule 'Round the World

She promised she would meet me  when the clock struck twenty-three
Down at the stockyards about a mile and a half away
Where pickle pig's feet and hog's ears sell for nineteen cents a pound
She's my freckle faced consunptive Sara Jane
Oh she's my daisy, black-eyed and crazy
Sweetest girl I thought I ever saw
Now her breath smells sweet, but I'd rather smell her feet
For she's my freckle faced consumptive Sara Jane
cho: I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     Rode in Noah's ark, I'm as happy as a lark
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
I was born four thousand years ago
And there's nothing on this earth I do not know
I saw Moses on the water, fighting pharaoh and his armies
And I can whup the man that says it tisn't so
I saw Satan when he searched that garden oe'r
I saw Satan when he searched that garden oe'r
The apple they were eating, through the bushes I was peeping
I can prove it, I'm the man that ate the core

I'm a highly educated man
And there are things in my brains that I have planned
Now I've been on earth too long, 'till I've learnrd sing a song
That old Abraham and Jacob used to sing
cho: I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     Rode in Noah's ark, he surround me with a shark
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
     I rode up to the line and I fell off against a pine
     I'm the man who rode the mule around the world
