Lyrics:

Well I married a wife in the month of June
Married her up by the light of the moon
We live down on Cripple Creek
We've been down there about a week

I'm a goin' down to Cripple Creek
I'm a goin' on the run
I'm a goin' down to Cripple Creek
To have some fun
Goin' down to Cripple Creek
Goin' on the run
Goin' down to Cripple Creek
To have some fun

Now a Cripple Creek girl's about half-grown
Jump on a man like a dog on a bone
Rolled my pants up to my knees
Crossin' Cripple Creek when I please

I'm goin' to Cripple Creek
Goin' on the run
I'm a goin' to the Cripple Creek To have some fun

I'm a goin' down to Cripple Creek
I'm a goin' on the run
I'm a goin' down to Cripple Creek
To have some fun
