My Captain

This song is by Muddy Waters and appears on the album Folk Singer (1964).

Oh captain, captain, hmm, ooh, my captain so mean
Oh captain, captain, hmm, ooh, my captain so mean
Ah, ain't feed me nothing, oh yeah, but soya bean

Oh the cook's all right, oh yeah, but the captain so mean
Hey, the cook's all right, oh yeah, but the captain so mean, I mean so mean
Ah, don't let me drive nothing, but just a old beat up wagon team

Yey, I worked all night, oh yeah boys, and I worked all day, ah, urn, so sad, so sad
Yey, I worked all night, oh yeah boys, and I worked all day
Ah, I couldn't find my mule, oh yeah, fella'd show nowhere

Yey, my wheel mule is crippled, hum, you know, my lead mule is blind
Yey, my wheel mule is crippled, hum, yes boys, my lead mule is blind
Now I ain't gonna buy my baby no more stockings, oh yeah boys, seem behind, mmm

Seem behind
Hum, people seem behind
