Crossroads/You Can't Catch Me

This song is by Stephen Stills and appears on the live album Stephen Stills Live (1975).

Johnson / Berry

Went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
Went down to the crossroads, tried to flag a ride
Nobody seemed to know me, everyone passed me by.


Went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord : 'Have mercy, mercy if you please'.

Going down to Rosedale, forty-four on my side
Going down to Rosedale, forty-four on my side
... On the riverside.

You can run, you can run, go tell my friend-boy Willie Brown
You can run, you can run, go tell my friend-boy Willie Brown
..., Believe I'm sinking down.

Bought myself a brand new air-mobile
(It was) custom made, like a Coupe de Ville
With a powerful motor and some hideaway wings
Push in on the button and you can make her sing.

But you can't catch me, no baby, you can't catch me
'Cause if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze.

New Jersey Turnpike in the wee wee hours
I was rolling slowly 'cause of drizzlin' showers
Here come a flattop, he come movin' up with me
Then come sailin' goodbye in a little old souped-up mini
I put my foot in my tank and I begin to the toll
Moanin' sirens, was the state patrol
So I let out my wings and then I blew my horn
About New Jersey, I become airborne.

And you can't catch me, no baby, you can't catch me
If you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze.
