Jack Haeger May EMUS 1832 4 March 2008 Listening Activity 7.1 1. 0.00 Introduction 0.09 I went to the cross road, fell down on my knees 0.25 I went to the cross road, fell down on my knees 0.37 Asked the Lord above, “Have mercy, save poor Bob, if you please.” 0.47 Mmm, standin’ at the cross road, I tried to flag a ride 1.01 Standin’ at the cross road, I tried to flag a ride 1.12 Ain’t nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by 1.21 Mmm, the sun goin’ down, boy, dark gonna catch me here 1.33 ooh eee, boy, dark gonna catch me here 1.45 I haven’t got no lovin’ sweet woman that love and feel my care 1.53 You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown 2.05 You can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown 2.16 Lord, that I’m standin’ at the crossroad, babe, I believe I’m sinkin’ down 2.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
