Creative Brief

by Joel Sattler 
good night captain 
but I aint finished for the day 
the full moon's rising 
and I got more work to do 
but aint nobody hiring 
and that includes you too
Hey hey mule skinner 
they won't pay you one thin dime 
you may be a mule skinner 
a mule skinner one last time 
the bank is on my neck 
and the weather is a crime 
I'm doing my own plowing 
like my daddy taught me to 
I got just one mule left 
and I aint got a mule for you 
But no matter what I got 
well that's gonna have to do 
there was once a time 
when my dad was in his prime 
and we worked all the time 
and thought we were doing fine 
but what did you expect 
we still aint got no respect
Up north they don’t use mules 
but they drink our bourbon cool  
up north they don’t grow cotton 
and they think that hunting’s cruel 
we work to make a living 
we don't work to play 
except for every Sunday 
after we go to church to pray 
and in the evening find us picking 
on the porch or in the yard 
and our lives are worth the living 
even though it may be hard  
and when our time is over 
and we're put into our graves 
and they cover us with clover 
know our souls they have been saved 
someday the last mule skinner 
will sing the last mule skinner blues 
some day the last mule skinner 
will sing the last mule skinner blues 
and when St Peter opens up the gates 
he hardly can refuse
