From: Patrick Glass

Subject: CRD: "Effigy"--Creedence Clearwater Revival (Corrected)

 

 

"Effigy" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

from the album Willy and the Poorboys--1969

transribed hastily (too hastily, since I got it wrong and had to fix it)

by Patrick Glass (patrick@spy.net)

 

Just the chords, because I can't quite make out all of the solo, but once

you know what the chords are, it's not too hard.

 

This is the whole chord progression:

 

C D Dsus4 D G C G E E7 E E7

 

 

Put it with the words and it sounds like this

 

C D Dsus4 D

Last night,

G C G E E7 E E7

I saw the fire burning on the palace door

C D Dsus4 D

O'er the land,

G C G E E7 E E7

Humble subjects watched with mixed emotion

C D Dsus4 D

Who is burning

G C Am7 E E7 E E7

Who is burning the effigy

(repeat that line again)

 

And here are all the words for the song:

 

Last night, I saw the fire burning on the palace lawn

O'er the land, humble subjects watched with mixed emotion

Who is burning, who is burning, the effigy??

Who is burning, who is burning, effigy??

 

Last night, I saw the fire spreading to the palace door

Silent majority wasn't keeping quiet anymore

Who is burning, who is burning, the effigy??

Who is burning, who is burning, effigy??

 

Last night, I saw the fire spreading to the countryside

In the morning, few were left to watch the ashes die

Who is burning, who is burning, the effigy??

Who is burning, who is burning, effigy??

Why? Why? Why? Effigy!

 

By far, my favorite CCR song. It just kicks.

 

NOTE:You could play the second G as a G/B (x20003). It sounds pretty good

that way, and might actually be the way it goes. But I wouldn't know :)
