Description

"Up on Cripple Creek" is the 5th song on The Band's eponymous second album, The Band. It was released as a single and reached #25 on the Billboard pop chart. The song seems to refer to Cripple Creek in Colorado, which has been associated with mining lore since a gold rush in the 1890s. "Up on Cripple Creek" was written by Band guitarist and principal songwriter Robbie Robertson, with drummer Levon Helm singing lead vocal.

A live performance of "Up on Cripple Creek" appears in The Band's live concert film The Last Waltz, as well as on the accompanying soundtrack album. In addition, a live version of the song appears on Before the Flood; a live album of The Band's various concerts and shows with Bob Dylan whilst touring together in 1974.
