Born on the bayou Creedence Clearwater Revival
Yow! Brings back memories of my bar band days, howling my balls off trying to sing that one just like John Fogerty... As I recall, the intro riff is just arpegggios based on this fingering for an E7 chord: x7675x The chords are basically just E7, with your occasional D -> A change thrown in. Lyrics, as best as I can remember 'em 25 years later: When I was just a little boy A-standin' to my daddy's knee My papa said, "son, don't let the man getcha And do what he done to me" And I can remember the Fourth of July A-runnin' through the backwoods bare And I can still hear that old hound dog barkin' Chasin' down a hoodoo there Born on the bayou... Wish I was back on the bayou A-rollin' with some Cajun queen Wish I was on a fast freight train Just a-chooglin' on down to New Orleans Classic rock - as opposed to "Classic Rock" - by one of the greatest American bands ever... Andrew old fart at play
