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...

About the artist behind Born On The Bayou Chords:

Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) was an American roots rock band who gained popularity in the late 1960s and early '70s with a string of successful songs from multiple albums released in 1968, 1969 and 1970.

The group consisted of singer, lead guitarist, and primary writer John Fogerty, rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bass player Stu Cook, and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed rock and roll and so-called swamp rock genres.

CCR's music is still a staple of American and worldwide radio airplay[1] and often figures in various media.
