Now I don't mind choppin' wood, and I don't care if the money's no good Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest But they never should have taken the very best The night they drove Old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing The night they drove Old Dixie down, and the people were singin' They went: La la-la la la la, la-la la-la-la la la-la la Like my father before me, I will work the land Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave I swear by the mud below my feet You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat The night they drove Old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing The night they drove Old Dixie down, and the people were singin' They went: La la-la la la la, la-la la-la-la la la-la la

Ollie warned me it's a mean old world The street don't greet ya, yes, it's true But what am I supposed to do Read the writing on the wall I heard it when I was very small When you awake...

To Lake Charles, Louisianna, little Bessie, a girl who I once knew
A
D
E
She told me just to come on by if there's 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
F#m
G
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 them five to one That nag to win came around the track, sure enough she had won Up on Cripple Creek.... I took up all of my winnings and I gave little Bessie half She tore it up and threw it in my face just for a laugh 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... Me and my mate we were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box She says, "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...

| 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 Up on Cripple Creek...
