Music From Big Pink album at
The Band's, "Up On Cripple Creek"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
Straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew
She told me just to come on by if there's anything that she could do
Why They're Nonsensical:
The city of Lake Charles, Louisiana, is not on the Gulf of Mexico. It is about 30 miles inland. It is also not on the Mississippi River.
