Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Early in the evenin' 'long about supper time
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind

Left allemande the corner, come home a dosado
Men star by the left and roll it once around you go
Turn the partner by the right hand round, and you go left allemande
Come on back and swing your girl, promenade the land
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade about 3/4 round the ring
Side two couples right & left thru, turn the girl I sing
You pass thru and swing thru and then the boys run right
You bend the line, move up to the middle and back, touch 1/4
Column circulate, boys run right to the corner, swing
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl and promenade the ring
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Rooster hits the washboard and the people start to smile
Blinky pumps a good bass and he solos for awhile

Left allemande the corner, come home a dosado
Men star by the left and roll it once around you go
Turn the partner by the right hand round, and you go left allemande
Come on back and swing your girl, promenade the land
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
You don't need a penny, just to hang around
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down

Left allemande the corner, come home a dosado
Men star by the left and roll it once around you go
Turn the partner by the right hand round, and you go left allemande
Come on back and swing your girl, promenade the land
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playing
Bring a nickel, tap your feet


TAG

Willy and the poor boys are playing
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.
