Crossroads

This song is by Cyndi Lauper and appears on the album Memphis Blues (2010).

I went to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroads
Fell down on my knees
I asked the lord above
"Have mercy on poor me, if you please"

Standing at the crossroad
Tried to flag a ride
I went down to the crossroad
Tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me but
Everybody passed me by

Standing at the crossroad, baby
Rising sun going down
I'm standing at the crossroad, baby
See the rising sun going down, down
I believe in my soul, now
Poor me, poor me is sinking down

You can run, you can run
Just tell my friend Willie Brown
You can run, you can run
Just tell my friend Willie Brown

That I got the crossroad blues
This morning, Lord, baby
And I'm slowly sinking down
Down, down, down, down, down

And I went down to the crossroad
And I looked east and west
I went to the crossroad, baby
I looked east I looked west
Lord, I didn't have me no sweet man
To hold me in my distress
