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

Refrain:
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

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

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

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

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

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

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

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