Mule on the Mount

Cap'n got a mule, mule on the mount called Jerry,
Cap'n got a mule, mule on the mount called Jerry,
     I can ride, Lawd, Lawd, I can ride.

I don't want no cold corn bread and molasses,
I don't want no cold corn bread and molasses,
     Gimme beans, Lawd, Lawd, gimme beans.

I don't want no coal-black woman for my regular,
I don't want no coal-black woman for my regular,
     She's too low-down, Lawd, Lawd, she's too low-down.

I got a woman, she's got money 'cumulated,
I got a woman, she's got money' cumulated,
     In de bank, Lawd, Lawd, in de bank.

I got a woman she's pretty but she's too bulldozing,
I got a woman she's pretty but she's too bulldozing,
     She won't live long, Lawd, Lawd, she won't live long.

Every pay day, pay day I gits a letter,
Every pay day, pay day I gits a letter,
     Son come home, Lawd, Lawd, son come home.

If I can just make June, July and August,
If I can just make June, July and August,
     I'm going home, Lawd, Lawd, I'm going home.

Don't you hear them coo-coo birds keep a'hollering,
Didn't you hear them coo-coo birds keep a'hollering,
     It's sign of rain, Lawd, Lawd, it's sign of rain.

I got a rainbow wrapped and tied around my shoulder,
I got a rainbow wrapped and tied around my shoulder,
     It ain't goin' rain, Lawd, Lawd, it ain't goin' rain.

Note: general work song with a whole bunch of good floaters from
other work songs.
From Mules and Men, Z. Hurston
