    Lyrics

    Molly Be Damned smote Jimmy the Harp
    With a horrid little pistol and a lariat
    She's goin' to the bottom and she's goin' down the drain
    Said she wasn't big enough to carry it

    She got to get behind the mule, yeah
    In the morning and plow
    Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Choppity-chop goes the axe in the woods
    You gotta meet me by the fall down tree
    A shovel of dirt upon a coffin lid
    And I know they'll come lookin' for me, boys
    I know they'll come lookin' for me

    Got to get behind the mule, yeah
    In the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Big Jack Earl was eight foot one
    And he stood in the road and he cried
    He couldn't make her love him, couldn't make her stay
    But tell the good Lord that he tried

    Got to get behind the mule, yeah
    In the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow, yeah
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Dusty trail from Atchison to Placerville
    On the wreck of the Weaverville stage
    Beaulah fired on Beatty for a lemonade
    I was stirring my brandy with a nail, boys
    Stirring my brandy with a nail

    Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow, yeah
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Well, the rampaging sons of the widow James
    Jack the Cutter and the Pockmarked Kid
    Had to stand naked at the bottom of the cross
    And tell the good Lord what they did
    Tell the good Lord what they did

    You got to get behind the mule, yeah
    In the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule, yeah, in the morning and plow
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Punctuated birds on the power line
    In a Studebaker with Birdie Joe Hoaks
    I'm diggin' all the way to China with a silver spoon
    While the hangman fumbles with the noose, boys
    The hangman fumbles with the noose

    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Get behind the mule in the morning and plow

    Pin your ear to the wisdom post
    Pin your eye to the line
    Never let the weeds get higher than the garden
    Always keep a sapphire in your mind
    Always keep a diamond in your mind

    You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
    Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
