When I get off of this mountain
You know where I want to go
Straight down the Mississippi River
To the Gulf of MexicoTo Lake George, Louisiana
Little Bessie, girl that I once knew
And she told me just to come on by
If there's anything she could doUp 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 oneGood 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 showOdds were in my favor
I had him five to one
When that nag came around the track
Sure enough we had wonUp 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 oneI took up all of my winnings
And I gave my little Bessie half
And she tore it up and blew it in my face
Just for a laughNow 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 teaUp 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 oneNow 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 fall
To the bottom of my feet
And I swore and I took another pull
My Bessie can't be beatUp 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 oneAs a flood out in California
And up north it's freezing cold
And this living off the road
Is getting pretty oldSo I guess I'll call up my big mama
Tell her I'll be rolling in
But you know, deep down, I'm kinda tempted
To go and see my sweet Bessie againUp 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
Это интересно:The Band на протяжении шести лет (с 1968 по 1975) были одной из наиболее популярных и влиятельных рок-групп, чья музыка рассматривалась столь же серьезно, как творения "Rolling stones" и "Beatles". А началось все в 1958-м, когда рок-н-ролльщик из Арканзаса Ронни Хокинс стал набирать себе сопровождающий состав. Одним из первых его соратников стал барабанщик Левон Хелм (р. 26 мая 1942). "Ronnie Hawkins & the Hawks"... продолжение
