Down on the Corner (the final Midweek Madness episode)

See a playlist containing all the Midweek Madness videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwIixlr7C6KVwmttHMbwJWNgifpTkoahh

This is the final episode of this little series. I've been waiting 20 years to cover this song! I tried to do it in a way that I thought was true to the song's story. I used my washboard, paddle bass, and ukulele for this classic Creedence Clearwater Revival tune.

Thanks for tuning into Midweek Madness these past few months.

I got this album ( also the "easy Rider" soundtrack) for my birthday in 1969. Must have played it a thousand times. Nice job Poorness.

Hey Elwood. Just cuz I covered this one doesn't mean you shouldn't. There are numerous songs on CBN that have been covered by all of us. I say go for it. I'd love to see your version.

Darn you - I had done that for one for decades - had it on my COVID series list to do - have a series of little late night parts & pieces on 'where to go with it'.  Pictures of Jake (brother Jack) with a wash-tub back in the 70's - we rented Limos and went to Fogerty concerts over the years when I traveled the US - some fun stuff.  Scratchin' that one for a while as your version just makes it classy while retaining the the classic nature of it :)  Elwood
