Subject: Origins: How old is the song 'Cripple Creek'?
Been a long time since I've posted here - I seem to have lost my cookie. Anyway, I've been wondering about the song Cripple Creek - specifically, would it have been played or sung in mid-19th century (that is, the 1850's - 1860's? Is it based on a tune from that era?
