Down On The Corner (Album Version)

Down On The Corner (Album Version)

John Fogerty

Early in the evenin'
just about supper time
over by the court house
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

[Chorus:]
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 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 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.

[Chorus x4]
