Down On The Corner — 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

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 a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out
On his kalamazoo
Willy goes into a dance
And doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

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

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
