(Robert Johnson)

I went down to the crosroads
Fell down on my knees
Down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
I said I'm beggin' for mercy won't you take me
If you please

I went down to the crossroads
Tried to beg a ride
I went down to the crossroads
Tried to beg a ride
Nobody seemed to know me
Everybody passed me by
Take a ride

Going down toward Rosedale
Took Loretta by my side
Going down to Rosedale
Took Loretta by my side
Can still buy a house there
On the riverside
One more time

You can run, you can run
Tell all my friends I'll be by
You can run, you can run
Tell my friends I'll be by
And I'll be stayin' in the crossroads
I believe I'm sinkin' down
