Well, I'm standin' at the crossroads
And I'm waitin' on my train
Well, and I'm wonderin' if you are my woman
And am I your man, I wanna be your man

Well, I've been travelin', I'm a soul searcher
So you know I know just where I'm comin' from
Well, I'm tired, I'm tired, tired of runnin' around in circles
But then I wanna come home, I wanna come back home

Mystic nights, oh, surround me
In the darkness, in the darkness of my soul
Well, I see the light come shinnin', shinin' through
The mystic hall, the mystic hall

There's mud on my shoes and there's mud on my trousers
And my money I spent or gave it away
But I don't care, just as long as you see me and you love me
As I am today, as I am today

Here I am at the crossroads
Crossroads of my life

Yeah, babe

Mystic nights, oh, surround me
In the darkness, darkness of my soul
Well, I see my light, I see my light
Come shinin' through the fog, the late liftin' fog, y'all

Now there's mud on my shoes and there's mud on my trousers
My money I spent or gave it away, yeah
I don't really care, just as long as you see me, darlin', um
As I am today, see me as I am today

I'm standin' at the crossroads
And I'm waitin' on the midnight train
And I'm wonderin' deep down
Inside of my heart and my soul, baby
If you are my woman and if I'm your man

Lord, I'm wonderin', I'm wonderin'
I hope I'm not too late

At the crossroads
