And, yes..

I thought that many folk/jazz classics would pop into my head..not yet.

I was just going to say ... I can't think of any more! And I thought that my mind would be full of crossroads-related songs. (Valiantly not googling them yet.)

Exactly, I'm surprised at the lack..and I can't think of many poems either.

Instead of just sitting on the fence - why not stand in the middle of the road?

Standing at the crossroads, trying to read the signs
To tell me which way I should go to find the answer,
And all the time I know,
Plant your love and let it grow.

[Chorus:]
Let it grow, let it grow,
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow,
Love is lovely, let it grow.

Looking for a reason to check out of my mind,
Trying hard to get a friend that I can count on,
But there's nothing left to show,
Plant your love and let it grow.

[Chorus]

Time is getting shorter and there's much for you to do.
Only ask and you will get what you are needing,
The rest is up to you.
Plant your love and let it grow.

[Chorus 2x]
Instead of just sitting on the fence - why not stand in the middle of the road?

461 Ocean Boulevard? Another album I caught up with about 20 years late. It's a good one.
