Notes about this song:

  • Notes from Wolfgang...
  • There was a tiny bit of discussion about the intro chords.
  • I think just playing G and Am (2x) comes very close to the guitar of the studio recording.
  • Or you can throw in an additional C and play G - Am - C (2x)
G         Am            C
Hey, hey, Cripple Creek Ferry
        G           C            G
Butting through the over hangin' trees
                 Am            C
Make way for the Cripple Creek Ferry
                  G           C               
The water's goin' down it's a mighty tight
G         Am  C  G  Am  C

All alone the captain stands
Hasn't heard from his deck hands
The gambler tips his hat
C                     G      C  G
And walks towards the door
         D7                 Am
It's the second half of the cruise
        C                G
And you know he hates to lose.  

(Repeat chorus until fade)
