Cross Road Blues

I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above for mercy, “save poor Tyler if you please”

Ooh, standin’ at the crossroad, tried to flag a ride
Man, I was standing at the crossroads, you know I tried to flag a ride
Didn’t nobody seem to know me, baby, everybody pass me by
Ain’ that the blues

Well the sun’s goin’ down, dark gon’ catch me here
Well you know the sun’s goin’ down, dark gon’ catch me here
And I ain’t got no lovin’ sweet woman for to feed and give me care
That’s the real blues

Well you can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
You tell him I’m standing at the crossroads, and I believe I’m sinkin’ down
