Crossroads
Cream Lyrics


I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Down to the crossroads fell down on my knees
Asked the lord above for mercy, "take me, if you please"

I went down to the crossroads tried to flag a ride
Down to the crossroads tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me, everybody passed me by

Well, I'm going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
We can still barrelhouse, baby, on the riverside

Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
We can still barrelhouse, baby, on the riverside

You can run, you can run tell my friend boy Willie Brown
Run, you can run tell my friend boy Willie Brown
And I'm standing at the crossroads believe I'm sinking down

Thank you, Eric Clapton lead, uh vocal

That's just unbelievable. Three guys producing a sound that's never been rivaled. They were all masters of their craft and their recordings will always live on.

I have been listening to this version of Crossroads for over 40 years and it still gives me chills.

@Dr. Barry Cohn Thank you for sharing, my wife saw the Beatles live when she was 13, we are pushing 70d now and the memories we try to bring back, ohhh well, I did see Leslie West and mountain live at W&J college, so I love those old tunes as well, take care Dr Cohn…..ms~~~

@MS Hum53 Pappalardi was a genius no doubt, he did help arrange for Disraeli Gears, but I don't think he did much with Clapton's mighty version of Crossroads. But, I could be wrong. Bruce, his mentor, deeply influenced him to put his bass up front. And man did he. I saw them many many times because I'm from NY and they were playing everywhere.

I'm 70 now. All these years later, this music still makes my heart pound. Jack Bruce was my biggest influence playing and learning Bass. Man those were the raw days of music to be sure.

Joe Rosenfield

Ditto. Everything you said is true for me too.

Douglas Newman

I’m with you! 72 years young here and my ears are still ‘thirsty" for this great music!!
