And yet no one mentions the CCR hit about the street performers on Royal Street in NOLA "Down on the Corner".

 

Early in the evenin', just about supper time

Over by the courthouse, they're startin' 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 Poor Boys 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

Poor Boy twangs the rhythm out, on his Kalamazoo

And Willy goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo

 

Down on the corner

Out in the street

Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'

Bring a nickel, tap your feet

 

Down on the corner

Out in the street

Willy and the Poor Boys 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
