Capo 1

Verse 1:

 CGC
 Early in the evenin'   just about supper time,  over by the courthouse,

 GCFC
they're starting to unwind, four kids on the corner,  trying to bring you up,

 GC
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.

Chorus:

 FCGCFC
 Down on the corner,  out in the street,  Willy and the Poorboys are playin'

 GC
bring a nickel,  tap your feet.

Verse 2:

 CGC
 Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile,  Blinky thumps the

 GCFC
gut bass and solos for awhile.  Poor-boy twangs the rhythm out on his

 GC
Kalamazoo.  And Willy goes in to a dance and doubles on Kazoo.

repeat chorus:

3rd verse:

 CGC
 You don't need a penny just to hang around,  but if you got a nickel won't

 GCFC
you lay your money down.  Over on the corner, there's a happy noise,

 GC
people come from all around to watch the magic boy.

repeat chorus and fade:

Again, if someone could send this to Nevada or tell me how I'd be thankful.

Bill G.
