Dolly Parton - Mule Skinner Blues

Mule Skinner Blues

Dolly Parton performs "Mule Skinner Blues" Live Video.

"Mule Skinner Blues" (a.k.a. "Blue Yodel #8", "Muleskinner Blues", and "Muleskinner's Blues") is a classic country song written by Jimmie Rodgers and George Vaughan. The song was first recorded by Rodgers in 1930 and has been recorded by many artists since then, acquiring the de facto title "Mule Skinner Blues" after Rodgers named it "Blue Yodel #8" (one of his Blue Yodels).

"George Vaughn", a pseudonym for George Vaughn Horton, is sometimes listed as co-author. Horton wrote the lyrics for "New Mule Skinner Blues", Bill Monroe's second recorded version of the song.

Dolly Parton - The Best Of Dolly Parton (1970) This 1970 recording of the song reached #3 on the U.S. country charts, and earned Parton a Grammy nomination. (Parton and Bill Monroe would later perform the song together on the 1978 CBS television special Fifty Years of Country Music.)

Dolly Parton - Mule Skinner Blues Lyrics


Well, good morning, Captain

Good morning to you, Sir

Hey hey, yeah

Do you need another mule skinner

Down on your new mud run?

Hey hey, yeah



Well I'm a lady mule skinner

From down old Tennessee way

Hey hey, I come from Tennessee

I can make any mule listen

Or I won't accept your pay

Hey hey, I won't take your pay



Well, hey hey, little water boy

Won't you bring your water 'round?

Hey hey

If you don't like your job

Well, you can throw your bucket down

Throw it down boy, throw it down



Well, I've been working down in Georgia

At a greasy spoon cafe

Hey, 've been working in Georgia

Just to let a no good man

Call every cent of my pay

Hey hey and I'm sick of it

And wanna be a mule skinner
