|Mostly done as an instrumental, (and mostly associated with banjo) lyrics only heard very rarely. Recorded by such heros as Doc Watson and Flat and Scruggs. Part A is the verse part and part B the chorus. Often found as a fiddle tune with words: "I got a gal at the head of the creek, Goin' up to see her 'bout the middle of the week...." "Goin' up to Cripple Creek, Goin' at a run, Goin' up to Cripple Creek to have a little fun." Most verses involve courting|
I got a gal and she loves me She's as sweet as she can be She's got eyes of ba-by blue Makes my gun shoot straight and true. Chorus Go-in' up Crip-ple Creek, go-in' on the run, Go-in' up Crip-ple Creek to have some fun.
Cripple Creek's wide and Cripple Creek's deep I'll wade ole Cripple Creek before I sleep Roll my britches up to the knees I'll wade ole Cripple Creek when I please. I went down to Cripple Creek To see what them girls had to eat I got drunk and fell against the wall Ole corn licker was the cause of it all
