(riffs 1 and 2 continue through verses along with rhythm guitar)

Verse 1:

C                       G                C
Early in the evenin'   just about supper time,  over by the courthouse,

        G              C    F                         C
they're starting to unwind, four kids on the corner,  trying to bring you up,

                              G               C
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.


F           C        G          C                      F            C
Down on the corner,  out in the street,  Willy and the Poorboys are playin'

          G               C
bring a nickel,  tap your feet.

Verse 2:

C                               G                 C
Rooster hits the washboard, and people just gotta smile,  Blinky thumps the

             G         C        F                              C
gut bass and solos for awhile.  Poor-boy twangs the rhythm out on his

                                             G              C
Kalamazoo.  And Willy goes in to a dance and doubles on Kazoo.

repeat chorus:

3rd verse:

C                       G              C
You don't need a penny just to hang around,  but if you got a nickel won't

     G             C      F                   C
you lay your money down.  Over on the corner, there's a happy noise,

                                G              C
people come from all around to watch the magic boy.

repeat chorus and fade:

Again, if someone could send this to Nevada or tell me how I'd be thankful.

this tab is great...except everyone forgot something in the verses of the song...the intro that is played throughout is changed in the verses. I dont know how to tab so i cant help, but i know its played at a higher key. Sorry i cant help but just listen to the song and you will see what I mean.
