"My Baby She Left Me (She Left Me a Mule to Ride)" as written by and Sonny Boy Williamson....
When my baby she left me
She left me with a mule to ride
When my baby she left me
She left me with a mule to ride
When her train left the station
That old mule laid down and died

Man I sent this woman
A brand new twenty dollar bill
Lord I sent that woman
A brand new twenty dollar bill
Now if that don't bring her back
I'm sure this old shotgun will

Lake Michigan ain't no river
Chicago ain't no hill town
Lake Michigan ain't no river
Chicago ain't no hill town
If I feel like this tomorrow
I'm gonna clear out be back down Memphis bound

I'll be standing down on the landing
When the big boat pull off and roll
I'll be standing on the landing
When the big boat pull off and roll
I'll be hopin and I'll be prayin
That I never see your face no more

When my baby left me
She left me with a mule to ride
When my baby she left me
She left me with a mule to ride
When her train left the station
That old mule laid down and died

Lord I sent that woman
A brand new twenty dollar bill
Man I sent my baby
A brand new twenty dollar bill
Now if that don't bring her back
I'm sure my shotgun will
