Down On The Corner

Creedence Clearwater Revival

C                    G                C
Early in the evenin' just about supper time, over by the courthouse,
G              C    F                         C
they're starting to unwind, four kids on the corner, trying to bring you up,
G               C
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.

F           C       G          C                     F            C
Down on the corner, out in the street, Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
G               C
bring a nickel, tap your feet.

C                               G                 C
Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile, Blinky thumps the
G         C        F                              C
gut bass and solos for awhile. Poor-boy twangs the rhythm out on his
G             C
Kalamazoo. And Willy goes in to a dance and doubles on Kazoo.

C                       G              C
You don't need a penny just to hang around, but if you got a nickel won't
G             C      F                   C
you lay your money down. Over on the corner, there's a happy noise,
G              C
people come from all around to watch the magic boy.
