Down at the Crossroads Songtext

Down at the Crossroads Songtext

Let me tell you a story, it's been told a hundred times
I think Robert Johnson was the first man to strike a deal and sign the dotted line
It's about a boy, becoming a man, learning what it's like to lose
Everything he had he was willing to trade for a lifetime of women and booze

He went west of the river, following the railroad tracks
He was looking for an evil dealer; you know there ain't no turning back

Welcome to the crossroads, bargain with your soul
Down at the crossroads, it's all for rock 'n' roll

He got a funny feeling, felt like somebody watching him
Out came a man in a three piece suit with a friendly crocodile grin
He said "Sign on the line and your dreams will come true"
Signed it and the paper burned
"Think of this as a favour to you but one day I'll want a favour in return"

He went back to the city, became a singer in a band
Got a record deal he was sitting pretty, everything was going to plan


Welcome to the crossroads, bargain with your soul
Down at the crossroads, it's all for rock 'n' roll

Fame and fortune come so easily
Now I have got such a bad case of insatiable greed
I don't think that life could get any better than this
All because a deal was made at the crossroads in Memphis

So twenty years passed, forgot about the covenant made
Until a man knocked on his mansion door, dressed in a tailored suit of Suede
The man had a familiar style; he had the smile of a crocodile
He held a contract and said "It is time to go to hell because your soul is mine"

So that completes the story of our tragic hero's demise
Can you work out where we learnt to sing? We can be your tour guides
And take you to the crossroads, bargain with your soul
Down at the crossroads, it's all for rock 'n' roll
Welcome to the crossroads, bargain with your soul
Down at the crossroads, it's all for rock, do it for rock 'n' roll
