Lyrics:
I went down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
Down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above for mercy
Take me, if you please
I went down to the crossroads
Tried to flag a ride
Down to the crossroads
Tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me
Everybody passed me by
Well, I’m going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
You can still borrow a house, baby
On the riverside

Going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
You can still borrow a house, baby
On the riverside

You can run, you can run
Tell my friend boy Willie Brown
Run, you can run
Tell my friend boy Willie Brown
And I’m standing at the crossroads
Believe I’m sinking down

Songwriters: Robert Johnson

  1. No mention of Cream in this article? This is as much a tribute to Eric Clapton and Cream as it is to Robert Johnson…probably more so, as this is literally Cream’s version of the Robert Johnson song.
