Creedence Clearwater Revival - Down on the corner
Album: Willy and the poor boys

John Fogerty - Vocals
Doug Clifford - Washboard
Stu Cook - Washtub bass

Early in the evenin just about supper time
Over by the courthouse theyre 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 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 a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo.
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo.

Chorus x2

You dont need a penny just to hang around
But if you've got a nickel wont you lay your money down
Over on the corner theres a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Chorus x3
