Country Joe McDonald – Standing At The Crossroads lyrics
Put my heart inside a bottle
And place it on the shelf
I'm savin' my love for you babe
And for no one else
Though miles may come between us
My love for you still lives on
The days gone by can never die
No matter how long I'm gone

Oh, I'm standin' at the crossroads
Just like a ship adrift at sea
The blues are like a bloodhound
Always comin' after me
Oh I'm standin' at the crossroads
Wonderin' which way to go
The blues are like my shadow
They're with me wherever I go

The times aren't always gentle
The people aren't always kind
But behind the bend might be a friend
There for you to find
But it seems like all good people
I meet as I'm travelin' through
Just sit down to talk and
Before we begin
They're off with their own things to do
