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.

I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.

A "hoodoo" is a ghost? Did you Google that, Crunchy?

@mierfr9 That Super Bee must have been one awesome and expensive ride. I wouldn't want to have to mess around w/the throttle linkages and mixtures on 3 two barrel carbs though. Did it just idle off of one of the 3 2-barrel carbs? Or all three?

Favorite Creedence tune. So hard to believe they never had a number 1 back in their day. They definitely made some good music though.

There aren't many bayous in your home town of El Cerrito, John, but your music is still great. I walk by your old house all the time...I don't think the owners even know you once lived there. You definitely were not born with that silver spoon in hand, so yeah. Rock on. You know what's up.
