  • Our music students have amazing talent!  They've been learning two, three, and even four part songs and have a great future ahead of them with an abundance of musicianship and dedication.  The above piece of music is a piece performed by a different school, but one that we hope to perform for you in concert.  If your student is in 5th or 6th grade chorus, I'm sure they'll want to sing along. Enjoy!  Feel free to contact me at a.gerlitzki@upperadams.org if you visit my page.  I'd love to hear from you!

     

  •           CRIPPLE CREEK arr. By Emily Crocker   

    Italics is 5thGrade only * Bold is 6th Grade only

     

    1Johnny’s got a gal at the head of the creek,  Goes up to see her ‘bout the middle of the week.

    Just like an apple from the tree, Sweetest little gal you ever did see.

     

    REFRAIN:  Goin’ up Cripple Creek, Goin’ in a run,    Goin’ up Cripple Creek, Have a little fun.

    Goin’ up Cripple Creek, Goin’ in a whirl,   Goin’ up Cripple Creek, To see his girl.

    Z I Z I Z I I   Z I Z I Z I I

     

    VS 2 Cripple Creek’s wide and Cripple Creek’s deep, He’ll wade Cripple Creek before he sleeps.

    Rulls up his britches to his knees,  He’ll wade Cripple Creek whenever he please

     

    REFRAIN (5thGrade sings slow, 6thGrade sings fast)

    Goin’ up Cripple Creek,          Goin’ up Cripple Creek, Goin’ in a run,

    Goin’ up to have a little fun. Goin’ up Cripple Creek to have a little fun.

    Goin’ up Cripple Creek,         Goin’ up Cripple Creek, Goin’ in a whirl,

    Goin’ up to see his girl.         Goin’ up Cripple Creek to see his girl.

     

    VS 3 Halfway there he stops to rest, Thinks about the gal that he loves best.

    Picks him a watermelon fresh off the vine, Spittin’ them seeds sure do feel fine!

    REFRAIN (REFRAIN (5thGrade sings slow, 6thGrade sings fast)

    Goin’ up Cripple Creek to see his girl!

     

    Bold and Italics both groups sing.
