I’ve got a mule, and 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
From Albany to Buffalo.

Low bridge, everybody down!
Low bridge, we’re coming to a town!
You will always know your neighbor;
You’ll always know your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated on the Erie Canal.

We’d better get on our way, old pal
(Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal).
You can bet your life, I’d never part with Sal
(Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal).
Sal, get us there; here comes a lock.
We’ll make Rome ’fore six o’clock.
One more trip and back we’ll go:
Right back home to Buffalo.

Low bridge, everybody down!
Low bridge, we’re coming to a town!
You will always know your neighbor;
You’ll always know your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated on the Erie Canal.
