Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time around
Back home swing, swing your lady 'round
Join hands, circle left walking around the ring
Allemande left your corner girl, weave around the ring
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie & the Poor Boys are playing,
bring a nickel, tap your feet


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands round you go
Around your corner girl you do a dosado
Swing thru and then, boys run to the right
Ferris wheel and now the centers pass thru
Swing thru and then, boys trade
And swing your corner lady round, you promenade the ring
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willie & the Poor Boys are playing,
bring a nickel, tap your feet


TAG

Willie & the Poor Boys are playing,
bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down On The Corner
 
 

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.
