Down on the Corner - CCR

 

Strophe) 

Early in the evening just about supper time 

Over by the courthouse thwy´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 

 

Refrain) 

Down on the corner, out in the street 

Willy and the poorboys are playin 

Bring a nickel tap your feet

 

 

Strophe) 

rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile 

Blinky, thumps the gut bass ans solos for a while 

Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo 

Willy goes into a dance and coubles on kazoo 

 

Refrain) 

Down on the corner, out in the street 

Willy and the poorboys are playin 

Bring a nickel tap your feet

 

Refrain) 

Down on the corner, out in the street 

Willy and the poorboys are playin 

Bring a nickel tap your feet

 

Strophe) 

You don´t need a penny just to hang around 

Buf it you´ve got a nickel, won´t you lay your money down 

Over on the corner there´s a happy noise 

Poeple come from all arount to watch the magic boy 

 

Refrain) 

Down on the corner, out in the street 

Willy and the poorboys are playin 

Bring a nickel tap your feet
