Up On Cripple Creek chords
The Band

A 4x

     A                               D
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
A                 D                         E
Straight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico
   A                               D
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew
A                   D                      E 
She told me just to come on by, if there's anything she could do

A
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
D
If I spring a leak she mends me
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me
  F#m                   G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

A                                   D
Good luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go
A          D                      E
She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show
    A                        D
The odds were in my favor, I had 'em five to one
A                D                          E
When that nag to win came around the track, sure enough we had won

A
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
D
If I spring a leak she mends me
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me
  F#m                   G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

A                                   D
I took up all of my winnings, and I gave my little Bessie half
A                      D                    E
And she tore it up and threw it in my face, just for a laugh
A                                              D
Now there's one thing in the whole wide world, I sure do like to see
A                      D                             E
That's how that little sweet thing of mine, dips her doughnut in my tea

A
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
D
If I spring a leak she mends me
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me
  F#m                   G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

A                                                 D
Now me and my mate were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box
A                           D                   E
She said, "I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk"
A                                           D
Now that just gave my heart a throb, to the bottom of my feet
A                D                     E
And I swore as I took another pull, my Bessie can t be beat 

A
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
D
If I spring a leak she mends me
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me
  F#m                   G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

              A                              D
Now there's a flood out in California and up north it's freezing cold
A               D               E
And this living off the road is getting pretty old
     A                               D
So I guess I'll call up my big mama, tell her I'll be rolling in
        A                    D
But you know, deep down, I'm kind of tempted 
   E
To go and see my Bessie again.

A
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
D
If I spring a leak she mends me
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me
  F#m                   G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
