I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me, everybody passed me by

Standing at the crossroads, and I fell down on my knees
I went down to the crossroads, asked the Lord for mercy
Save me if you please

Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
You can still barrel house, baby, on the riverside

You can squeeze my lemon baby, 'til the juice runs down my legs
You know what I'm talking about
You can squeeze my lemon baby, 'til the juice runs down my legs
But I'm goin' back to [Incomprehensible], if I be rockin' to my head

You can run, you can run, go and tell my friend boy Willie Brown
You can run, you can run, tell my friend boy Willie Brown
And I'm standing at the crossroads, I believe I'm sinking down
