Excellent! I hadn't heard this is in many decades. We used to sing in school when I was just a lad (just as you probably did too). This makes me rethink the whole song. I like your performance very much. I easily imagine the mule/barge man plodding along the bank in rhythm with his mule (or team of mules) singing this song . . . I know all about mules . . . they don't walk too fast, and no man is going to convince them othwise. They "plod!" But they are very smart and usually are gentle creatures. Great performance Steve!

Thank you Tom, My neighbor is a mule drover and I often help out when he is away doing his Fire Marshalling duties, the mules are very cool beasts,They love the Cantil but resent the load.......Take Care Tom.................................Steve
