The title cut from Lee Sexton's 1989 solo album "Whoa Mule" from June Appal Records. This was one of the first and only traditional music videos to play on the country music cable channels. The video features alternating scenes of Sexton behind a mule-drawn plow, tending to his three-acre garden in rural Linefork, Kentucky, and a performance of the Lee Sexton Band at a square dance at the Blackey Senior Citizens' Center in Blackey, Ky.

"Charming and entertaining." -The Associated Press
"Lee Sexton has been something of a legend among those who love old time mountain music. For years, homemade tapes have been eagerly passed from one banjo enthusiast to the next. . . Lee Sexton is one of the finest traditional old time banjo players in the country." -David Holt, Host of PRI's "Riverwalk Jazz "
