When[A] I get off of this mountain, you[D] know where I want to go? [A]Straight down the[D] Mississippi River to the[E] Gulf of Mexico. [A]To Lake Charles, Louisianna, little[D] Bessie, a girl who I once knew. [A]She told me just to[D] come on by if there's[E] anything that 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. A[F#m] drunkard's dream if I[G] ever did see one. [A]Good luck had just stung me, to the[D] race track I did go. [A]She bet on[D] one horse to win and I[E] bet on another to show. The[A] odds were in my favor, I[D] had them five to one. [A]That nag to win came a[D]round the track,[E] sure enough she 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. A[F#m]drunkards dream if I ever did see one. I[A] took up all of my winnings and I[D] gave little Bessie half. [A]She tore it up and[D] threw it in my face[E] just for a laugh. [A]There's one thing in the whole wide world[D] I sure would like to see. [A]That's when that little[D] love of mine dips her[E] 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. A[F#m]drunkards dream if I ever did see one. [A]Me and my mate we were back at the shack, we had[D] Spike Jones on the box. [A]She says, "I[D] can't take the way he sings, but I[E] love to hear him talk." Now[A] that just gave my heart a throb to the[D] bottom of my feet. And I[A] swore as I took a[D]nother pull, my[E] 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. A[F#m]drunkards dream if I ever did see one. There's a[A] flood out in California and up[D] north it's freezing cold. [A]And this living[D] on the road is[E] getting pretty old. So I[A] guess I'll call up my big mama,[D] tell her I'll be rolling in. But you[A] know, deep down, I'm[D] kind of tempted to[E] go and see my Bessie again.
