composer of " along the trail" -Aaron Copeland? I have a nice jazz version of this (Dexter Gordon, Al Cohn) that I used to use as the outro for my radio show, otherwise it's kind of hard to find-anyone ever put lyrics to it?

Are you thinking of "On the Trail," the third movement from The Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofé?

(Hee-hop, hee-hop, mule)

(Hop-hee-hop, hee-hop)

The stubbornest mule I ever saw
He's tossin' his head, he's raisin' ol' Ned
He's gettin' me all of a twitter
That ornery critter, he goes

He must have been born in Arkansas
Don't want to be led, he wants to be fed
Why he'd make the Statue of Liberty
Flibberty-gibberty

He's hankerin' for a hunk of straw
He can't hear my song, he's joggin' along
His footsteps that are beating, are tellin' him soon
He'll be eatin' his fill
(Clipperty-hopperti, clipperty-clop)
(Clipperty-hopperti, clipperty-clop)
(Clipperty-hopperti)
Over the rim of the hill

We're on the trail
The sun is low, the canyon is wide
Hi-ee, hi-oo
We sing a song as we ride

We're on the trail
My mule and I, we haven't a care
Hi-ee, hi-oo
My heart is free as the air

Out on the ole painted desert
I know a wonderful site
Where we can build us a fire
Where we can spend the night

The sun will rise
And in the skies, the stars grow pale
Hi-ee, hi-oo
And we'll be back on the trail
Be back on the trail, the trail, the trail
