ARTIST: Creedence Clearwater Revival
TITLE: Down on the Corner
Lyrics and Chords

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

/ C - G C / / F - C - / C - G C /

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

/ F C G C / F C / G C /

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gutbass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo


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 boys

{Refrain, repeat to fade}
