| Riff 1      | Riff 1     | Riff 2      | Riff 1    |

(riffs 1 and 2 continue through verses along with rhythm guitar)


Verse 1:


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

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

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


Chorus:

F           C        G          C                      F            C
Down on the corner,  out in the street,  Willy and the Poorboys are playin'

          G               C
bring a nickel,  tap your feet.


Verse 2:

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

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

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


repeat chorus:

3rd verse:

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

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

                                G              C
people come from all around to watch the magic boy.


repeat chorus and fade:
