One day I was riding along on my old mule,
Minding my own business and I wasn't bothering a soul.
So I seed a raccoon and a possum.
The raccoon was up the 'simmon tree and the poor possum he was on the ground.
And I heard the possum holler up to the raccoon,
Say, "Hey, Bub, will you throw me some 'simmons down?"
And the raccoon hollered down to the possum,
Say, "Look, Bub," say, "You in the shade laying down. Now what you worried about?"

So I spurred my mule and went ridin' on down the road
Minding my own business and I wasn't bothering a soul.
So I seed a rabbit and he was in the pea vine.
So I said, "Hey, Bub, where you guine (going)?"
So he bucked his eyes and he curled his tail
And he said, "Look, Bub, I'm looking for muscadine."

So I spurred my mule and went ridin' on down the road
Minding my own business and I wasn't bothering a soul.
So I seed a little red hen and a rooster
And I heared the little red hen say to the rooster,
Say, "Look, Bub, I ain't gonna take this setting down.
Me here hatching out all white, black and brown
And you out catfishing all over town."

So I spurred my mule and I went ridin' on down the road.
So I seed a beautiful girl, so I say. "Hey, lady. Are you married?"
And she say, "No, Bub. And never been kissed."
I said, "Well, look -- I got a twenty-dollar bill and a Cadillac car
And I knows a cute little place right over the hill."
And she say, "To heck with your Cadillac car,
But keep talking about that hill and them twenty-dollar bills."

So I spurred my mule and went ridin' on down the road
Minding my own business and I wasn't bothering a soul.
So finally I rode into town and I seed a man standin' at the window pullin' off his clothes.
And every time he'd pull off a piece, he'd throw it out the window.
So I said, "Hey, Bub, -- what goes?"
So he said, "Look, Bub, -- if you knowed what I paid for this room and what's in it, them clothes will be out of style when I come down."
