Down On The Corner

In the style of

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Lyrics

early in the evenin'
just about supper time
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

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet

rooster
hits the washboard
and people
just gotta smile

rufus thumps
the gut bass
and solos for a while
poorboy twangs
the rhythm out
on his kalamazoo

and willie
goes into a dance
and doubles on kazoo

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street

willie 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
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and
the poorboys
are playin'
bring a nickel
tap your feet
