_____Sweet Hitch-Hiker______
written by John C. Fogerty
I got the version from the "Chronicle", but there's also a live-version on "Live in Germany"
[D]Was Ridin' along side the highway, [G]rollin' up the country side.
[D]Thinkin' I'm the devil's heatwave, [G]what you burn in your crazy mind?
[D]Saw a slight [C]distraction[G] standin' by the road;
[C]She was smilin' there, [A]yellow in her hair;
[D]Do you wanna, I was thinkin', would you care.
[A]Sweet Hitch-a-Hiker,
We could make music at the [G]Greasy King.[D]
[A]Sweet Hitch-a-Hiker,
Won't you ride on my fas[G]t machine?
[D]Cruisin' on thru the junction, I'm [G]flyin' 'bout the speed of sound,
[D]Noticin' peculiar function, I ain't no r[G]oller coaster show me down.
[D]I turned away to s[C]ee her,[G] Woah! she caught my eye,
[C]But I was rollin' down, [A]movin' too fast;
[D]Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can it last.
SOLO during D C G C A D
[D]Was busted up along the highway, I'm the [G]saddest ridin' fool alive.
[D]Wond'ring if you're goin' in my way, won't you [G]give a poor boy a ride?
[D]Here she comes a [C]ridin',[G] Lord, She's flyin' high.
[C]But she was rollin' down, [A]movin' too fast;
[D]Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can I last.
Then repeat the chorus 3 times and fade out. Dat's it.
Another great number of America's phantastic Creedence chaps...

I should've been born 30 years ago, when those guys were rockin'...
