Everybody SING! The Erie Canal…

Images from the Canal as the song is played, including a verse I’d never heard before.

Erie Canal

(traditional)

I’ve got a mule, her name is Sal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal
She’s a good old worker and a good old pal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal

We’ve hauled some barges in our day
filled with lumber, coal and hay
And we know every inch of the way from
Albany to Buffalo.

Chorus:
Low bridge, everybody down
Low bridge for we’re coming to a town
And you’ll always know your neighbor, you’ll always know your pal
If you’ve ever navigated on the Erie Canal.

We better get along on our way ol’gal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal

‘Cause you bet your life I’d never part with Sal,
15 miles on the Erie Canal.
Git up there mule, here comes a lock,
We’ll make Rome about 6 o’clock
One more trip and back we’ll go, right back home to Buffalo.
