DOT OLE BAY MULE OF MINE.
Copyright, 1881, by C. R. Dockstader.
I've beta about dis many a day,
I'm forty years of age,
And when I was but ten years old
A stable boy was made;
I've seen de fastest horses,
And de one dnt made best time,
But of all, 1 never seen one
Like dat ole bay mule of mine.
He ain't-'cept when he is tied-
He aiu't pretty to behold,
But then he's faithful, good, and true,
And dat am more dan gold;
He never runs away with me,
Or cuts up any shineHe's just de best nag in de world,
Dat ole bay mule of mine.
I speck dat when dat ole mule dies
He'll join some angel band,
Wid silver shoes on his ole feet,
He'll prance de golden sand;
De angels gather'd round him,
Dat's where I'll go to find,
Dressed up wid rings and heavenly robes,
Dat ole bay mule of mine.-Chorus.
