Cripple Creek Ferry

Album: After The Gold Rush (1970)
  • Hey, hey Cripple Creek ferry
    Butting through the overhanging trees
    Make way for the Cripple Creek ferry
    The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze

    All alone the captain stands
    Hasn't heard from his deck hands
    The gambler tips his hat and walks towards the door
    It's the second half of the cruise
    And you know he hates to lose

    Hey, hey Cripple Creek ferry
    Butting through the overhanging trees
    Make way for the Cripple Creek ferry
    The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze

    Hey, hey Cripple Creek ferry
    Butting through the overhanging trees
    Make way for the Cripple Creek ferry
    The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze Writer/s: Neil Young
