Did Robert Johnson really sell his soul to the devil ?


 Johnson took his guitar to the crossroads of Highways 49 and 61 in Clarksdale, Mississippi where the devil retuned his instrument in exchange for his soul. ... He returned with a formidable technique and a mastery of the blues.


The one most closely associated with his life is that 
he sold his soul to the devil at a local crossroads to achieve musical success. His music had a small, but influential, following during his life and in the two decades after his death.

Lyrics : 

[Verse 1]
I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees
I went to the crossroad, fell down on my knees

Asked the Lord above, "Have mercy now
Save poor Bob if you please"


[Verse 2]
Yeoo, standin' at the crossroad, tried to flag a ride
Ooo eeee, I tried to flag a ride
Didn't nobody seem to know me, babe, everybody pass me by


[Verse 3]
Standin' at the crossroad, baby, risin' sun goin' down
Standin' at the crossroad, baby, eee, eee, risin' sun goin' down
I believe to my soul, now, poor Bob is sinkin' down

[Verse 4]
You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown
That I got the crossroad blues this mornin', Lord
Babe, I am sinkin' down

[Verse 5]
And I went to the crossroad, mama, I looked east and west
I went to the crossroad, baby, I looked east and west
Lord, I didn't have no sweet woman
Oh well, babe, in my distress
