Erie Canal Song

Erie Canal Song by Thomas S. Allen

I've got an old mule and her name is Sal

Fifteen years on the Erie Canal

She's a good old worker and a good old pal

Fifteen years on the Erie Canal

We've hauled some barges in our day

Filled with lumber, coal, and hay
And every inch of the way we know

From Albany to Buffalo

Low bridge, everybody down

Low bridge for we're coming to a town

And you'll always know your neighbor

And you'll always know your pal
If you've ever navigated on the Erie Canal

Bruce Springsteen - Erie Canal
