Erie Canal for Easy Piano Solo

About the Erie Canal
The Erie Canal, in New York state, extends from the Hudson River to Lake Erie, connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.

Lyrics
I’ve got a mule,
Her name is Sal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
She’s a good old worker
And a good old pal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
We’ve hauled some barges in our day
Filled with lumber, coal and hay
And ev’ry inch of the way I know
From Albany to Buffalo.

Low Bridge, ev’rybody down,
For it’s Low Bridge,
We’re coming to a town!
You can always tell your neighbor,
You can always tell your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated
On the Erie Canal.
Low Bridge, ev’rybody down,
For it’s Low Bridge,
We’re coming to a town!
You can always tell your neighbor,
You can always tell your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated
On the Erie Canal.

About the Composer
Giacomo Puccini (22 December 1858 – 29 November 1924) was an Italian composer whose operas are among the most frequently performed in the standard repertoire. Puccini was “the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi”. While his early work was rooted in traditional late-19th century romantic Italian opera, he successfully developed his work in the ‘realistic’ verismo style, of which he became one of the leading exponents.

Lyrics
I’ll pillage a village to grab all the loot,
I’ll hijack a ship and I won’t give a hoot.
I’ll kidnap fair maidens, the fairest I’d meet,
Then give them a smile and tickle their feet.

Goodbye, old Paint,
I’m a-leaving Cheyenne.
Goodbye, old Paint,

Old Paint’s a good pony.
He runs when he can,
Good morning young lady,
My pony won’t stand.

Goodbye, old Paint,
I’m a-leaving Cheyenne.
