Crossroads (Live)

Lyrics

I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
Asked the Lord above for mercy, "Save me if you please."

I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride.

I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
Asked the Lord above for mercy, "Save me if you please."

I went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride.

Bought this aalbum at White Front and saw them at Winterland I guess...in '67 and k
Duh...puhlee z excuse typos
d..maybe..Av a l o n . . C h e t Helms..that was a comfy place..Jimi Janis..but Otis I missed ..Guess I am in some way responsible. . m a y b e all of us fans..Really wanted to see that act.......ke e p on dancing!
No need for reconnaissan c e . There are no enemy forces in sight. The coast is officially clear. Renaissance or reformation may be close at hand. You can feel safe to choose either direction.
There will never be another band like cream and to quote bass extraordinar e Jeff Berlin "Jack Bruce's bass line is a melody by itself in this song". Timeless.
The perfect guitar solo. And live!!!
What a kick a** song!
My generation .luv early clapton
I like how Skynyrd modeled their version after Cream's, gave it a funky southern twist.
Love this song!!
Oh yeah. We all owe Robert Johnson a huge debt if you are a rock and/or blues fan.
Crossroads is quite simply one of the best rock and roll tunes ever written a.nd performed. Cream just nailed it baby. The image of the Crossroads is so fantastic. Clapton wails on this piece. The movie referred to here is solid but is very hard to find. Peace and Music.
Everybody pat ma high.

When this was released on the "Wheels of Fire" LP in the summer of 1968, i believe, they were writing 'Clapton is God' all over the nyc transit system!!!

That was an AWESOME movie!!!
i like this song i can listen all night.
Crossroad the movie about Robert Johnsons missing last song. The Karate kid actor is in it. Has anybody heard of it. None of video stores around here carry it. They keep trying to sell me some Britney spears movie?-YUCK no thanks to that!
EXCELENT!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Gotta agree with Stephen, Geoffrey, and Sal. This was EC at his very best, a real standout performance.
In high school I used to blast this song on my stereo every morning before I left for school. Great song.
yeah, man, this song has the best guitar/bass solo combo.
dbpeck3
anyone who can REALLY cover Crossroads is good. Robert Johnson Was the blues Cream understood that.
My absolute favorite rock song even though Zeppelin is my favorite band. Agree with Geoffrey and Sal. Perfection.
Yes - this is the definitive, classic version of this blues classic ; none come close, ( not even Clapton - solo ) . The CREAM version !!

The best rock/blues single of all time. I love Cream, not so hot on Clapton, but this song has rocked me since I was 14 and that was 40 years ago! Robert Johnson wrote it 70 years ago, but Cream made it unforgettabl e ! ! ! ! !
truher

Never knew it was live.
Damn right Ted, and it's LIVE!
His all-time most rip-roaring solo. This song burns. Don't forget the bass that never sleeps...
tedbujalski
