Crossroads Blues
Robert Johnson Lyrics


I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above, have mercy now, save poor Bob if you please

Standin' at the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
Whee-hee, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by

Standin' at the crossroads, risin' sun goin' down
Standin' at the crossroads baby, the risin' sun goin' down
I believe to my soul now, po' Bob is sinkin' down

You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
That I got the crossroad blues this mornin', Lord, baby I'm sinkin' down

I went to the crossroad, mama, I looked east and west
I went to the crossroad, babe, I looked east and west
Lord, I didn't have no sweet woman, ooh well, babe, in my distress

I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above, "Have mercy, save poor Bob if you please"

[Verse 2]
Mmmm, standin' at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride
Standin' at the crossroad, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by

[Verse 3]
Mmmm, the sun goin' down boy, dark goin' catch me here
Oooo ooee eeee, boy dark goin' catch me here
I haven't got no lovin' sweet woman that love and feel my care

[Verse 4]
You can run, you can run, tell my friend boy Willie Brown
You can run, tell my friend boy Willie Brown
Lord that I'm standing at the crossroad, babe
I believe I'm sinkin' down

I went to the crossroad
fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad
fell down on my knees

Asked the Lord above "Have mercy, now
save poor Bob, if you please
Mmmmm, standin' at the crossroad
I tried to flag a ride

Standin' at the crossroad
I tried to flag a ride

Didn't nobody seem to know me
everybody pass me by
Mmm, the sun goin' down, boy
dark gon' catch me here
oooo ooee eeee

boy, dark gon' catch me here
I haven't got no lovin' sweet woman that
love and feel my care

You can run, you can run
tell my friend-boy Willie Brown
You can run, you can run
tell my friend-boy Willie Brown

Lord, that I'm standin' at the crossroad, babe
I believe I'm sinkin' down

Wonder what Robert would have said if someone told him that 15 million people would listen to one of his songs almost eighty years after his passing.

Kyle Cooper

He would probably be like "ahh no please stop burning me devil, give me back my soul!"

Paul Mooney

Hard to fathom all at

Dragan Filipovic

More then 100! bro

He'd say the devil already told him...

Well technically those 15-18 mil for sure aren't that many DIFFERENT. Those are actually how many hits it had so far. It does not mean there are 18 mil different individuals that have listened to it.

I'm just grateful these recordings exist. Imagine how much timeless sound has been lost to history.

Logan Dawson

@Mohn 9501 he's on about other masterpieces that got lost, you little knobhead

Mike Smith

@Tudval Stone What is your point? What do you mean ONLY has historical value? Are you drunk?

Tudval Stone

This has only historical value, can't see how one would look at it as art any more than a caveman painting.
