Creedence Clearwater Revival
Down On The Corner


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



Down On The Corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet



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



Down On The Corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet



Down On The Corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet



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



Down On The Corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet



Down On The Corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet...
