Mule Train
Frankie Laine


[Words and Music by Johnny Lange, Hy Heath, and Fred Glickman]

(Hyah, hyah)
Mule train (hyah, hyah)
Mule train
Clippety cloppin' over hill and plain
Seems as how they never stop, clippety clop, clippety clop
Clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety cloppin' along

There's a plug o'chaw tobacky for a rancher in Corona
A ghee-tar for a cowboy 'way out in Arizona
A dress of calico for a pretty Navajo
Get along, mule, get along

Mule train (hyah, hyah)
Mule train
Clippety cloppin' o'er the mountain chain
Soon they're gonna reach the top, clippety clop, clippety clop
Clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety cloppin' along

There's some cotton thread and needles
For the folks in way-out-yonder
A shovel for a miner who left his home to wander
Some rheumatism pills for the settlers in the hills
Get along, mule, get along

Mule train (hyah, hyah)
Mule train
Clippety cloppin' through the wind and rain
They'll keep goin' till they drop, clippety clop, clippety clop
Clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety, clippety cloppin' along

There's a letter full of sadness
Trimmed with black around the border
A pair of boots for someone who had them made to order
A bible in the pack for the Reverend Mr Black
Get along, mule, get along

Get along, mule, get along (mule train)

(Hyah, hyah)
(Hyah, hyah)
