Creedence Clearwater Revival – Born On The Bayou

Lyrics –
Now, when I was just a little boy,
Standin’ to my Daddy’s knee,
My poppa said, “;Son, don’t let the man get you
Do what he done to me.”;
‘Cause he’ll get you,
‘Cause he’ll get you now, now.

And I can remember the fourth of July,
Runnin’ through the backwood, bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’,
Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.
Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.

Born On The Bayou;
Born On The Bayou;
Born On The Bayou.

Wish I was back on the Bayou.
Rollin’ with some Cajun Queen.
Wishin’ I were a fast freight train,
Just a chooglin’ on down to New Orleans.


Do it, do it, do it, do it. Oh, Lord.
Oh get back boy.

I can remember the fourth of July,
Runnin’ through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’,
Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.
Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.


All right! Do, do, do, do.
Mmmmmmm, oh.

  2. Remembering Tom Fogerty born on November 9, 1941. He was an American musician, best known as the rhythm guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival. He was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. After leaving the band, Fogerty began performing and recording as a solo artist. He had minor hits like "Goodbye Media Man", "Cast The First Stone", "Joyful Resurrection", and "B.A.R.T". He remained with Fantasy Records and his 1971 solo debut album, Tom Fogerty, reached No. 78 on the Billboard 200 chart. –

  3. Reminds me of the Vietnam War era

  4. Congratulations, you have found your first step. Screenshot this and send it to your Confessional

  5. i love this song cause brings back awesome memories of youth!

  6. I wonder if Tina Turner would have done so well without making one of their songs her own.


  8. From Smokey…Blues Rock at its best!!!

  9. If you play this song on guitar, it's quickly evident that the chording is very similar to "Ode To Billy Joe". In fact, they are both southern gothic type songs. They use the exact same chord progression and have the same slide from minor to major/minor chord. They were recorded just a couple of years apart with "Ode To Billy Joe" having been recorded first, and it just so happens that "Ode" was a huge crossover success literally bumping two Beatles songs off the number one spot in the two respective countries they had previously been number one in.

  10. Very few people can master this style of music, I cannot describe it but any Creedence Clearwater Revival fan knows what I am talking about.
    *I noticed I spelled something wrong.

  11. Musica que jamás volverán a componer y serán por siempre joyas musicales por la eternidad para el mundo

  12. Man…that concert at the Albert hall was inspired !

  13. This has balls with a lotta heart

  14. I remember the first time I heard this song around 1969…it was like someone whacked me between the eyes with a chunk of 2X4, from the first wave of howling feedback to the opening arpeggios dripping with reverb, to the full frontal assault of drums and bass. And then that voice; rough, gravelly, like nothing I'd ever heard before. How do you ever forget something like that? And the hit machine churned out one after another from that point on until the breakup of CCR. These boys took a nothing record company and put them on everybody's wish list while making Saul Zaentz a very rich man.

  15. ….You don't listen to music, you FEEL IT!

  16. The most atmospheric song ever. Change my mind.
