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.
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.
