CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL : BORN ON THE BAYOU [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Υποβλητικές εικόνες από μια φανταστική παιδική ηλικία που ο John Fogerty, Καλιφορνέζος, έζησε στους Βάλτους της Λουιζιάνα. Από το δεύτερο άλμπουμ των CCR, Bayou Country του 1969.

Evocative images from an imaginary childhood that
John Fogerty, a Californian, lived in the Louisiana Swamps. From the second CCR album, Bayou Country, 1969.


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 freight train
Oh, just a-chooglin’ on down to New Orleans
Born on the Bayou
Born on the Bayou
Born on the Bayou
Oh get back boy
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
