“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
I’m a-goin’ down to Cripple Creek to have a little fun
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on a whirl
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek to see my girl

Well, Cripple Creek girls is about half grown
Jump on a man like a dog on a bone
Roll my britches up to my knees
Gonna 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 a little fun
Goin’ down to Cripple Creek, I’m goin’ on a whirl
I’m a-goin’ down to Cripple Creek to see my girl

Peter: Thank you.
