E7                             A7		     E7
I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
A7                                                  E7
I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
B7                               A7                   E7
Ask the lord up above for mercy, take me if you please.


E7                             A7                  E7
I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
A7                                                 E7
I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
B7                        A7                     E7
Nobody seemed to know me, everybody passed me by.


E7                               A7			 E7
Well I'm going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
A7                                                       E7
Well I'm going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side
B7                              A7               E7
You can still buy a house baby, on the riverside.


E7                        A7                            E7
You can run, you can run, tell my friends I'll be around
A7                                              E7
Run, you can run, tell my friends I'll be around
B7                                   A7                  E7
Well I'm standing at the crossroads, believe I'm sinking down.
