Down On The Corner


by 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

C - - - /    / G - - - / C - - - / x4  / F - - - /    / C - - - /     / C - - - /    / G - - - / C - -- //

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

F - - / C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / x4 //

Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for awhile
Poor﷓boy twangs the rhythm out on his Kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance and doubles on Kazoo

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

(Solo on verse)

 C:	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 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

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

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

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