Music Lyrics Bass and Guitar Tabs


The Lyrics Are Below



Early in the evenin' just about supper time,

Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind.

Four kids on the corner trying 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 Poorboys 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.

Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo.

Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo.



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.
