Goin’ Up To Cripple Creek To Have Some Fun   Leave a comment

Cripple Creek, Colorado (June 16,2014) — Images by kenne (Click on any of the tiled images to see larger view in a slideshow format.)

After leaving Ft. Collins, our next planned overnight stop was to be Colorado Springs. However, as we neared the Pike’s Peak area, I noticed a highway sign to Cripple Creek and thinking, “goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run; goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun.” So, we took the highway around Pike’s Peak over the Cripple Creek, an old mining town with probably more casinos per captia than anywhere in America.

Maybe we will do Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak some other time.

I got a gal at the head of the creek
Goin up t’ see her ’bout the middle of the week
Kiss her on the mouth, just as sweet as any wine
Wraps herself around me like a sweet potatoe vine

Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin in a whirl
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ see my girl

Girls up on Cripple Creek about half grown
Jump on a man like a dog on a bone
I’ll roll my britches up to my knees
An’ wade in ol’ Cripple Creek when I please

Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ have a little fun
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek, goin in a whirl
Goin’ up t’ Cripple Creek t’ see my girl
