Muley’s Daughter

Clawhammer banjo for the complete ignoramus cover

Muley’s Daugher

by Wayne Erbsen © 1974

Gain’ down to the spring
Fetch a pail of water
Goin’ to old Muley’s house
Gonna marry his daughter
Gonna marry his daughter

Throw a stone out in the pond
Let the ripples show
When I find that girl of mine
Some flowers we will sow, love,
Flowers we will sow

Take my love by the hand
To the mountain far
Lay there on a summer’s night
Countin’ all the stars, love,
Countin’ all the stars

Way up on the mountain there
Gonna build a house so fine
Look down over the valley fair
With that girl of mine, love,
With that girl of mine

Fifteen turns in her braid
Daisies in her hair
Angel dust upon her face
And her feet are bare, love,
And her feet are bare

Instruction on how to play this song can be found in Wayne Erbsen’s book: Clawhammer Banjo for the Complete Ignoramus
