Lyrics

Riding with the wind She's come and gone again Some say she came from Georgia Some say from Tennessee But there never was another like my old blue mule Lord knows there'll never be She could jump right over a mountain She could outrun a diesel train Her mother was that blue ox, babe She was born in the eye of a hurricane And the only race my blue mule ran Was down in Tennessee Against Molly and the Tenbrooks All the people came to see Now Tenbrooks was the favorite People said I was a fool Riding high, wide and handsome On my pretty blue mule Hey, hey, hey blue mule Riding with the wind She's come and gone again Hey, hey, hey blue mule Ride on Ride on blue mule Well around the track like a whirlpool Old Molly took the lead Then Tenbrooks nosed on out ahead Boys, there was a wild stampede Coming into the final lap Neck and neck it was a duel My blue mule started flying Which was against the rules When we hit the finish line For the very last time around I swear my blue mule she came out in front Fifty feet from the ground The crowd was cheering Tenbrooks It was a sight to see But overhead and out of sight Was my old blue mule and me Hey, hey, hey blue mule Riding with the wind She's come and gone again Hey, hey, hey blue mule Ride on Ride on blue mule Well she never knew that race was run She never came back down She won that race in outer space Not on solid ground So when you hear a storm a-raging And you hear a storm a-wailing It's me riding on my old blue mule With lighting stinging her tail Hey, hey, hey blue mule Riding with the wind She's come and gone again Hey, hey, hey blue mule Ride on down Ride, ride, ride Ride, ride, ride Ride on blue mule Ride, ride on
