Went to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
Went down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees

I asked the Lord above to have mercy
Have mercy on old B, if you please

Oh, standin' at the crossroads
Tried to flag a ride
Oh, standin' at the crossroads
I tried to flag a ride

Didn't nobody seem to know me
Everybody passed me by
(Everybody just passed me by)
Alright, yeah

Oh, the sun goin' down, boy
Now time won't catch me here
Oh, the sun goin' down, boy
Now time won't catch me here

I ain't got no lovin' sweet woman
Love and feel my care

You can run, you can run, boy
Tell my friend Willie Brown
Tell my friend Willie Brown
Run, run, run
Tell my friend Willie Brown
I'm standin' around

I believe I'm sinkin' down
I believe I'm sinkin' down
I believe I'm sinkin' down, my money

Oh, I went to the crossroads, mama
I looked east and I looked west
Well, I went to the crossroads, mama
Oh, I looked east and I looked west

Lord, I have no sweet woman
Well, in my distress

Please save old Bob, please help me if you can
(Please save old Bob if you please)
Save old B, if you please
If you please, save old Bob, if you please
Yeah
