Crosswalk: aka Linus' Blues (apologies to Robert Johnson)

I went down to the crosswalk
fell down on my knees
I went down to the crosswalk
fell down on my knees
Asked the Great Pumpkin "Have mercy now
save poor Linus if you please"
Yeeooo, standin at the crosswalk
tried to get to the other side
ooo ooo eee
I tried to get to the other side
Didn't nobody stop for me Lucy
everybody pass me by
Standin at the crosswalk Lucy
risin sun goin down
Standin at the crosswalk Lucy
eee eee eee, risin sun goin down
I believe to my soul now,
Poor Linus is sinkin down
Oh good grief, oh good grief
tell my friend Charlie Brown
Oh good grief, oh good grief
tell my friend Charlie Brown
(th)'at I got the crosswalk blues this mornin Great Pumpkin
Lucy, I'm sinkin down
And I went to the crosswalk momma
I looked east and west
I went to the crosswalk Lucy
I looked east and west
Great Pumpkin, I didn't have no sweet security blanket
ooh-well Lucy, in my distress
