New South - Muleskinner

you're a good looking woman for a mule skinner
for a muleskinner you're a good looking woman
you'd look pretty in heels and furs
i could put you in heels, i could wrap you in furs

don't bother me rounder,
rounder don't you bother me
i never where nothing but chaps and spurs
you won't put me in heels you can't wrap me in furs
'cause i never where nothing but chaps & spurs

you're a smart talking woman for a muleskinner
for a muleskinner you're a smart talking woman
you could get a job at a library
i could swing you a job at the county library

you're a damn fool rounder,
rounder you're a damn fool
i ride from the desert to the high prairie
but i never set foot in no library
i just ride from the desert to the high prairie

well i ain't a rounder, i'm a brand inspector
and i see your mule got a mexican brand
if i had a dollar i'd be willing to bet you
that you smuggled that mule across the rio grande

brand inspector, I'm a muleskinner
i ain't thieving horses, i ain't rustling cattle
take my mule if you must
but let me keep my saddle

i shoot turkey and i shoot snake
and i'll shoot a muleskinner,
make no mistake
I'll shoot you muleskinner
like I'd shoot a snake

you shoot i have no doubt
but do you shoot a pistol
like you shoot your mouth
'cause brand inspector
you sure can shoot your mouth

you're a good looking woman for a muleskinner
for a muleskinner you're a good looking woman
you'd look prettier wrapped in furs
instead of rolled in a blanket lying in the dirt
now you're rolled in a blanket lying the dirt

don't bother me rounder
rounder you don't bother me
'cause I'm still wearing my chaps and spurs
you still hear my spurs
