The Erie Canal

The Erie Canal
(trad.)


Adam Bernstein, bass
Joe Ruddick, alto sax
I loved this song when I was a kid. I think it was the change from minor to major that got me.


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 cargo in our day
Filled with lumber coal and hay
And we know every step of the way
From Albany to Buffalo

Low bridge, everybody down
Low bridge 'cause we're comin' 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

Look out old mule here comes a lock
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
And we'll make Rome about six o'clock
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
It's one more lock and then we'll go
Right back home to Buffalo
And every step of the way we know
From Albany to Buffalo

Low bridge . . .
