C                    G                   C
Early in the evenin' just about supper time
C                              G              C
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind
F                       C
Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up
C                             G                 C
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

F                C  G              C
Down on the corner, out in the street
              F                  C          G                   C
Willy and the Poorboys are playin', bring a nickel; tap your feet

C                              G                  C
Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
C                              G              C
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
F                             C
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
C                           G             C
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

F                C  G              C
Down on the corner, out in the street
              F                  C          G                   C
Willy and the Poorboys are playin', bring a nickel; tap your feet

Guitar solo: | C | G C | C | G C | F | C | C | G C |

F                C  G              C
Down on the corner, out in the street
              F                  C          G                   C
Willy and the Poorboys are playin', bring a nickel; tap your feet

| C | G C | (2 times)

C                      G              C
You don't need a penny just to hang around
    C                                 G               C
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down?
F                  C
Over on the corner there's a happy noise
C                              G                C
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

F                C  G              C
Down on the corner, out in the street
              F                  C          G                   C
Willy and the Poorboys are playin', bring a nickel; tap your feet
