DOWN ON THE CORNER    (CCR)
 
 
 

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.
 

Refrain :

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.
 

Refrain
 

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.
