Down on the Corner
Creedence Clearwater Revival Lyrics


Early in the evenin' just about supper time
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner tryin' to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
Poor Boy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there's a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

I've been looking for this song since 2010. I remember being in the car, I was 2 and I heard this song and I loved it. I remembered the song for years and never heard the song again and couldn't find which song it was. On December 2019, I was at Mexico visiting my grandparents and I had just woken up and the classic rock station was on this radio and this song was playing. I remembered the title 'Down on the corner" and didn't search it up on YouTube because there was no WiFi over there. I got back last month from Mexico but forgot to search it, but here I am. Finally found this beautiful song! I love Credence Clearwater Revival but never knew this song was by them!

That bass line is so simple but so perfect. And what a chorus. Great song.
