Cross Road Blues
Robert Johnson Lyrics


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"

Yeah, standin' at the crossroad, tried to flag a ride
Ooh-ee, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, babe, everybody pass me by

Standin' at the crossroad, baby, risin' sun goin' down
Standin' at the crossroad, baby, risin' sun goin' down
I believe to my soul, now, poor 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

And I went to the crossroad, mama, I looked East and West
I went to the crossroad, baby, 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, now, save poor Bob if you please"

Ooh, standin' at the crossroad, tried to flag a ride
Ooh-ee, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, babe, everybody pass me by

Standin' at the crossroad, baby, risin' sun goin' down
Standin' at the crossroad, baby, eee-eee, risin' sun goin' down
I believe to my soul, now, poor 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, babe, I'm sinkin' down

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

This is THE song that made rock. That is literally what and all you need to know.

@aldair martinez I don't think @Jugg2n was being racist, he is quoting the legend. There is a legend around for years that Johnson was a mediocre guitar player who dispareered for nine months and then came back as one of the best players there was. Other musicians used to say he sold his soul to the devil as part of a deal for becoming an amazing blues musician.

there's no one song, the you can argue this is not rock, it's blues, and it's not rythm and blues .... which sister roseta tharpe is closer to in the 20s... and there's lots of contenders

i actually think you want to argue about this, we might as well say rock and roll is from the 50s and give it to Bill Haley.... it was the origin of the term "rock" surely

@Jugg2n thats what jealous racists say bud
