Down on the Corner (Credence Clearwater Revival)


[C] Early in the evenin’ [G] just about supper [C] time,
Over by the courthouse they’re [G] starting to un- [C] -wind.
[F] Four kids on the corner [C] trying to bring you up.
Willy picks a tune out and he [G] blows it on the [C] harp.


[F] Down on the [C] corner, [G] out in the [C] street
Willy and the [F] Poorboys are [C] playin’
Bring a [G] nickel, tap your [C] feet.

[C] Rooster hits the [G] washboard and people just got to [C] smile,
Blinky, thumps the gut bass and [G] solos for a [C] while.
[F] Poorboy twangs the rhythm out [C] on his kalamazoo.
Willy goes into a dance and [G] doubles on ka- [C] -zoo.


[C] You don’t need a penny [G] just to hang a- [C] -round,
But if you’ve got a nickel, won’t you [G] lay your money [C] down?
[F] Over on the corner [C] there’s a happy noise.
People come from all around to [G] watch the magic [C] boy.
