I couldn’t find the lyrics nor the music for this song, but it was a part of a you tube video showing a guy cutting down a huge tree and missing two buildings with the falling of it.  They gave credits for the song as “Rendezvous, by Jack Bowers”, but I couldn’t find anything on line.  The song was pretty catchy and so I wrote down the words, here they are:

 

THESE OLD MOUNTAINS HOLD ME CLOSE
THESE OLD MOUNTAINS HOLD ME NEAR
I’M RUNNING LOW ON TRUST
AND I’M RUNNING LOW ON GEAR
SO SOON I’LL TAKE THE TRAIL
THAT LEADS ON DOWN TO RONDEEVOO
THEY ARE HAVIN DOWN ON LOWER GROUND

PACK UP THE MULES
PACK UP THE MULE
WELL I GOTTA GIT ALONG TO THE RONDEEVOO

MIKE AND JOE ARE COMIN
I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THEM THERE
THEY SPENT THE WINTER HUNTIN, TRAPPIN BEAVER
HUNTIN BEAR
DON’T THINK THAT THEY’LL BE TRADIN
FOR POWDER BEADS AND LEAD
THOSE BEAR HIDES THAT THEY HAVE
WILL MAKE A WARM AND COMFY BED

PACK UP THE MULES
PACK UP THE MULE
I GOTS TA GIT ALONG TO THE RONDEEVOOO

WE’LL CLAP AND SING A NEAT SONG
PUT ON LOTS OF FAT
SPIN YARNS AND TALL STORIES
ALL ABOUT THIS AND THAT
THEN HAVE US A CONTEST
TRY TO WIN SOME LOOT
IF’N WE’RE THE WINNER OF THE
DADBURN TURKEY SHOOT

OH YES—PACK UP THE MULES
PACK UP THE MULE
I GOTTA GIT ALONG TO THE RONDEEVOOO

MY MULE AND I BEEN HUNTIN
ABOVE THE OLD AL PINE
AND HIGH UP IN THEHILLS
TENDING OUR TRAP LINE
BUT SOMTIMES WE GET LONESOME
FOR NEEDIN US SOME FUN
BESIDES I GOT A HANKERIN FOR A BRAND NEW HAWKIN GUN

OH PACK UP THE MULES
PACK UP THE MULE
FOR I GOT TA GIT ALONG TO THE RONDEEEVVVOOOOOOOO

 

Just in case somebody want to put the words to music.

    He’s actually singing “I’m running low on drugs, I’m running low on gear”, as “gear” is a slang word for drugs.

    I’m hearing “runnin’ low on drunk” as in alcohol. booze is often often termed as “drunk” in many country songs

    Hes known as “many Strings” so if you are trying to find his music look under that as the artist name.
