Down on the Corner
Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR)
Mail these lyrics to a friend
Early in the evening, 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 playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.
Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blink thumps the gut bass and solos for awhile
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo.
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.
