Down On The Corner

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Early on the evening, just about suppertime
Over by the courthouse they're startin' to unwind
Four kids on the corner, tryin' to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

CHORUS:
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Rooster hits the wash board, and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gut-bass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out, on his kalamazoo
Willie goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

CHORUS:

SOLO

CHORUS:

You don't need a penny, just to hang around
But if you 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

CHORUS:

CHORUS:

CHORUS:
