Subject: Re: REQ: "Born on the Bayou" by CCR


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...



old fart at play
