Git Along Ol' Mule
From Plank Road Publishingby Mike Wilson
The old fiddle, dobro, banjo, and guitars in this song will take you and your students on a journey back to the Old West. The song takes place on the streets of the Gold Rush town of Sonora, California. Of course, not everyone struck it rich. Through this song, we witness the lament of one sorrowful old miner who didn't. Use this song to invite cross curricular discussion about the Gold Rush and the Westward Expansion in general.
Choose a unison voicing for younger groups (part 1) or challenge older groups with the optional parts 2 and 3 for some real fun. The kit includes rehearsal tracks for parts 2 and 3. We've also provided an accompaniment mix that includes only parts 2 and 3 so that you can use it with a unison group and still have the effect of 3-part singing. (from Music K-8, Vol. 17, No. 3)
