I went to the crossroad
Fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad
Fell down on my knees

Asked the Lord above
"Have mercy now, save poor Bob if you please"
He [Incomprehensible] the crossroad
Tried to flag a ride

I tried to flag a ride
Ain't nobody seem to know me, baby
Everybody pass me by

Standin' at the crossroad, baby
While the sun goin' down
Standin' at the crossroad, baby
While the sun goin' down

[Incomprehensible]
You can run, you can run
Tell my friend Willie Brown
You can run, you can run
Tell my friend Willie Brown

[Incomprehensible] crossroad, oh Lord
Babe, I'm sinkin' down
I went to the crossroad, woman
I looked in [Incomprehensible]

I went to the crossroad, baby
[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]
Baby, [Incomprehensible]
