    CREAM - CROSSROADS (Johnson) From WHEELS OF FIRE/LIVE AT THE
            FILLMORE album. Released on June 1968.
   
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva






    I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knee
    I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knee
    Asked the Lord above for mercy, "Save 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 by

    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 buy a house, baby, on the riverside

    SOLO 

    Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
    Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
    You can still buy a house, baby, on the riverside

    SOLO

    You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown
    You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown
    And I'm standing at the crossroads, believe I'm sinking down

I'd like to see your approach, but don't worry, you'll get older soon and maybe you won't look so noobish yourself.
