down on the corner lyrics – creedence clearwater revival

early in the evenin’,
just about suppertime,
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 b*ss
and solos for a while.
poor boy tw*ngs the rhythm out
on his kalamazoo.(1)
and willy goes into a dance,
devil’s on the loose.

down on the corner,
out in the street,
willy and the poor boys are playin’,
bring a nickel, tap your feet.

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.

down on the corner,
out in the street,
willy and the poor boys are playin’,
bring a nickel, tap your feet.

down on the corner,
out in the street,
willy and the poor boys are playin’,
bring a nickel, tap your feet.

down on the corner,
out in the street,
willy and the poor boys are playin’,
bring a nickel, tap your feet…
