Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Early in the evenin', just about supper time
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind
Poor kids on the corner trying to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Circle left
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie and the poor boys are playin'

Allemande left and promenade
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie and the poor boys are playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples lead to the right and circle up four tonight
Break out and make a line and now pass thru
Tag the line, face out, you do the partner trade and then
A right & left thru, turn the girls
Slide thru and an eight chain five
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie and the poor boys are playin'

Swing your corner, promenade
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well Rooster hits a washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky pumps a good bass and he solo's for a while
Poor boy twangs a rhythm out on his kalamazoo
Willie goes into a dance and he doubles on kazoo


*Now 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 them magic boys


TAG

Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down On The Corner Lyrics ID: 674

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.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys 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 Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Lyrics by John C. Fogerty.
Recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
