DOWN THE CORNER

DOWN THE CORNER
Creedance Clearwter 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

* Down on the corner, out in the street.
Willy and the Poor boys 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 awhile
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out
on his kalamazoo
Willy goes in to a dance
and doubles on kazoo
Repeat * 2X

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.
Repeat * 2X
