The Erie Canal

Also known as “Low Bridge, Everybody Down.”

I 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
From Albany to Buffalo

[Chorus]

Low bridge, everybody down
Low bridge, ’cause we’re coming to a town
And you’ll always know your neighbor
You’ll always know your pal
If you ever navigated on the Erie Canal

Get up there, Sal, we passed that lock
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
And we’ll make Rome ‘fore six o’clock
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
Just one more trip and back we’ll go
Through the rain and sleet and snow
‘Cause we know every inch of the way
From Albany to Buffalo
