#1.
A DWhen I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
A D EStraight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico.
A DTo Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew.
A D EShe told me just to come on by, if there's anything she can do.
CHORUS:
AUp on Cripple Creek she sends me..
Dif I spring a leak she mends me.
EI don't have to speak, she defends me..
F#m Ga drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
#2.
A DGood luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go.
A EShe bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show.
A DThe odds were in my favor, I had 'em five to one..
A D Ewhen that, nag to win, came around the track, sure enough we had won.
CHORUS:
AUp on Cripple Creek she sends me..
Dif I spring a leak she mends me.
EI don't have to speak, she defends me..
F#m Ga drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
#3.
A DI took up all of my winnings, and I gave my little Bessie half.
A D EAnd she tore it up and threw it in my face, just for a laugh.
A DNow, there's just one thing in the whole wide world, I sure would like to see..
A D Ethat's when that goooood love of mine, dips her doughnut in my tea. Hee, hee.
CHORUS:
AUp on Cripple Creek she sends me..
Dif I spring a leak she mends me.
EI don't have to speak, she defends me..
F#m Ga drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
#4.
A DNow, me and my mate were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box.
A D EShe said, "I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk."
A DNow, that just gave my heart a throb, to the bottom of my feet.
A D EAnd I swore as I took another pull, my Bessie canít be beat.
CHORUS:
AUp on Cripple Creek she sends me..
Dif I spring a leak she mends me.
EI don't have to speak, she defends me..
F#m Ga drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
#5.
A DThere's a flood out in California, and up North it's freezing cold.
A D EAnd this, living on 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 DBut you know, deep down, I'm kind of tempted,
Eto go and see my Bessie, again.
CHORUS:
AUp on Cripple Creek she sends me..
Dif I spring a leak she mends me.
EI don't have to speak, she defends me..
F#m Ga drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
OUTRO:
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
A D A DLoooow, looow, hoo..loodle, loodle, loodle hooo.
A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
