"Crossroads (Robert Johnson cover)" as written by and Robert Johnson....
Went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Asked the lord for mercy, said help me if you please

I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
No one seemed to know me, everybody passed me by

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

    General CommentMaybe it's only because I haven't
    heard the orginal but I love this song!
    So bluesy and amazing, I only wish it
    was a little longer. One of my top 3
    of the album. Then again I haven't heard
    the original so I have nothing to compare
    it to.

    General CommentWell I have yet to hear the
    Robert Johnson version, however
    I did accidentally stumble across
    the Cream version...Which really
    sucked in comparison to my John.
    Sorry Clapton! :(
