The Erie Canal
Traditional Song Lyrics and Sound Clip

Piano Solo


I've got a mule, her name is Sal,
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
She's a good old worker and a good old pal,
Fifteen 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
Fom Albany to Buffalo.

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,
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
'Cause you bet your life I'd never part with Sal,
Fifteen 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.
