We were just backroading home to Texas from Denver, and decided to stop in Cripple Creek and check the Teller County records for our marriage license. We were both so nervous some 25 years ago that we thought we gave the wrong SSN's. Turns out that SSN's weren't even part of the actual record!


Shame I buggered up the lower front valance parking there.

Wow - driving from Denver to Lubbock in the SLK sounds like a dream. I'm jealous.

Also - Congrats on 25 years of marriage.

Best Wishes

Well, Ken,

You stumped me as I am not very musically literate....So, I looked up the Band.

I don't think they are referring to the same place (lyrics below) as they are "Up ON Cripple Creek"

Up On Cripple Creek lyrics
Songwriters: Robertson, Robbie;

When I get off of this mountain
You know where I want to go
Straight down the Mississippi river
To the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles Louisiana
Little Bessie, girl that I once knew
She told me just to come on by
If there's anything that she could do

Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don't have to speak, as she defends me
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 'em five to one
When that nag to win came around the track
Sure enough we had won

Up on Cripple Creek, as she sends me
If I spring a leak, as she mends me
I don't have to speak, as she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

I took up all of my winnings
And I gave my little Bessie half
And she tore it up and threw it in my face
Just for a laugh
Now there's one thing in the whole wide world
I sure would like to see
That's when that little love of mine
[ From: UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK Lyrics - BAND ]
Dips her doughnut in my tea

Up on Cripple Creek, as she sends me
If I spring a leak, as she mends me
I don't have to speak, as she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

Now 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 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, as she sends me
If I spring a leak, as she mends me
I don't have to speak, as she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

As 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, 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

Cripple Creek, Colorado, is a historic, old mining town in the mountains northwest of Pueblo.
