Down on the Corner

Listen to the Midi File of "Down on the Corner"

Creedence Clearwater Revival


Early in the evenin'
just about supper time.
Over by the courthouse
they're starting to unwind.
Four kids on the corner
trying to bring you up.
Willy picks a tune out and
he blows it on the harp.

Rooster hits the washboard
and people just got to smile

thumbs the gutbass
and solos for a while.
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out
on his kalamazoo.
Willy goes into a dance
and doubles on kazoo.

You don't need a penny
just to hang around.
But if you've got a nickel

won't you lay your money down?
Over on the corner
there's a happy noise.
People come from all around
to watch the magic boy.


Down on the corner
out in the street

Willy and the Poorboys are playin';
Bring a nickel; tap your feet.
