Lyrics:

       Em                  Am              B7
I've got a mule and her name is Sal
Em                                 B7    Em
Fifteen miles on the Erie Ca - nal
             Em                              Am         B7
She’s a good old worker and a good old pal
Em                                 B7    Em
Fifteen miles on the Erie Ca - nal
            G                                   D7
We’ve hauled some barges in our day
Em                                    B7
Filled with lumber, coal and hay
       Em                  Am            B7
And we know every inch of the way
         Em                  B7   Em   D7
From Albany to Buf - fa - lo____

Chorus:
G                            D7
Low bridge everybody down
G                                    D7        G
Low bridge for we’re coming to the town
G                               D7
You’ll always know your neighbor
G                                D7
You’ll always know your pal
             G             Am                G    D7    G
If you’ve ever nav-i-gat-ed on the Erie Can - al

We better get along on our way, old gal
Fifteen miles on the Eire Canal
Cause you bet your life, I’d never part with Sal
Fifteen miles on the Eire Canal
Git up there, mule, here comes a lock
We’ll make Rome about six o’clock
One more trip and back we’ll go
Right back home to Buffalo

Chorus

Don’t have to call when I want my Sal
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
She trots from her stall like a good old gal
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
I eat my meals with Sal each day
I eat beef and she eats hay
And she ain’t so slow if you want to know
She put the ‘buff’ in Buffalo
