Up on cripple creek she sends me. If I sprang a leak, she mends me. I don't have to speak, she defends me. A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.

This is the kind of music that needs to be passed on to our kids and grand kids and on and on.

I can hear The Weight in this song. It almost sounds like it could be extra verses off that track. I didn't even know they were both by the same guys until I googled, but the resemblance is so strong!

I think Marty Scorcese captured these guys in their true element. Check it out Johnson!!
