Merle Haggard does an outstanding live performance of the age-old classic "Mule Skinner Blues". 

The song tells a tale of a struggling mule skinner. He goes to "the Captain" looking for work, and begins glorifying his skills. He says, "I like to work, I'm rollin' all the time. I can carve my initials on your mule's behind". Who wouldn't hire him?! 

"Mule Skinner Blues" was originally recorded by Jimmie Rodgers, and released in July 1930. Although a number of artists have covered this song since the song's release, Merle has a way of bringing it back to it's classic glory. 

You won't be let down with Merle's rendition of this great song! 

++++++++++LYRICS BELOW++++++++++

Good mornin' Captain good mornin' son
Do you need another mule skinner out on your new wood line
De yodel ei-ee-hee oh le-ee le-ee oh le-ee.

I like to work I'm rollin' all the time
I can carve my initials on your mule's behind
De yodel ei-ee-hee oh le-ee le-ee oh le-ee.

Hey, hey, little water boy hey bring your water round
If you don't like your job then set your bucket down
De yodel ei-ee-hee oh le-ee le-ee oh le-ee.

I'm going to town honey what you want me to bring you back
How about a pint of booze and a Johny B Stetson hat
De yodel ei-ee-hee oh le-ee le-ee oh le-ee.

Hey, I smell your bread a burnin' woman turn your damper down
If you ain't got a damper good gal turn your bread around
Around I said around
De yodel ei-ee-hee oh le-ee le-ee oh le-ee...
