“Cripple Creek” Lyrics

Well, I married a wife in the month of June
Married her up by the light of the moon
We live down on Cripple Creek
We’ve been down there about a week

I’m a-goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on a run
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek to have some fun
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on the run
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek to have some fun

Now Cripple Creek girls are about half grown
They jump on a man like a dog on a bone
Roll my pants up to my knees
Cross on Cripple Creek a-when I please

I’m a-goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on a run
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek to have some fun
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on the run
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek to have some fun

Peter: Thank you! You’re such a lovely audience, we’d love to take you home with us, we’d love to take you home. I don’t really wanna stop the show, but I thought you might like to know that the singer’s gonna sing a song, and the nan’s name is Michael Nesmith.
