G   				    C7
When I get offa this mountain, you know where I wanna go
G 		   C			    D
Straight down the Mississippi river to the Gulf of Mexico
G		    G7		      C		        C7
To Lake Charles Lousianna, that little Bessie girl I once knew
G		     C			     D
She told me just to come on by, if there's anything she could do

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

Good luck had just stung me, To the racetrack 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 Ďem 5 to 1
That nag to win came around the track, sure enough we had won


I took up all of my winnings, and I gave my little Bessie half
She tore it up and threw it in my face, Ďa just for a laugh
Now thereís one thing in the whole wide world I sure would like to see
Thatís when that little love of mine dips her donut in my tea


Well 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 pour, my Bessie canít be beat


G        C
Lo lo lo ooo
G              C

There's a burnout in California and up north it's freezing cold
And this livin' offa the road is gettin' pretty old
So I guess I'll call up my big Mamma, and tell her I'll be rollin' in
But you know, deep down, I'm kinda tempted to go and see Bessie again
