Crossroads – Cream!

I went down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knee
Down to the crossroads
Fell down on my knee
Asked the Lord above for mercy
Take me if you please

I went down to the crossroad
Tried to flag a ride
Down to the crossroad
Tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me
Everybody passed me by

Well, 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 borrow a house, baby
On the riverside

Going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
Going down to Rosedale
Take my rider by my side
You can still barrel 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 barrel house, baby
On the riverside

Solo

You can run, you can run
Tell my friend boy Willie Brown
Run, you can run
Tell my friend boy Willie Brown
And I’m standing at the crossroad
Believe I’m sinking down


Crossroads – Chords & Guitar Lessons

The riff use an A chord, with a C on string 5. C is the m3rd in relation to A. We also have a C# on string 2, which means that the riff is a mix between minor and major.

This makes complete sense since it is common practice in blues to mix minor and major.
