Lyrics of Up On Cripple Creek

When I get off of this mountain you know where I wanna go
Straight down the Mississippi river to the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles Louisiana little Bessie girl I once knew
She told me just to come on by
If there's anything that she could do
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
Good luck had just stung me to the race track I did go
She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show
The odds were in my favor
I had 'em five to one
When that nag to win came around the track sure enough she had won
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
I took up all of my winnings and I gave my little Bessie half
She tore it up and threw it in my face just for a laugh
Now there's one thing in the whole wide world
I sure would like to see
That's when that little love of mine dips her doughnut in my tea
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
Me and my mate were back at the shack we had Spike Jones on the box
She said I can't take the way he sings but I love to hear him talk
Now that just gave my heart a throb to the bottom of my feet
And I swore as I took another pull my Bessie can't be beat
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
Now there's a flood out in California
And up north it's a freezin' cold
And this livin' off the road is gettin' pretty old
So I guess I'll call up my big mama tell her I'll be rollin' in
But you know deep down
I'm kind of tempted to go and see my Bessie again
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
Oh ooh ooh lad dah lah dah lah ooh ooh
