Fogerty, John - Creedence Song Lyrics

Daddy had a band
Playing him a little guitar
Travel in a van
Livin' that rock and roll
Night after night
People comin' up to the bandstand
Say you can't go wrong
If you play a little bit of that
Creedence song

It was late one night
Cruisin' on down the interstate
Stopped into a diner
To get him some chili and fries
Heard the waitress tell a guy
Standin' over by the jukebox
Yeah, you can't go wrong
If you play a little bit of that
Creedence song

Do do
Do do
Do do

But daddy took a shine
Little girl behind the counter
She was moving her hips to the swamp beat
Right on time
Said could he play somethin'
Over there on the jukebox
She said you can't go wrong
If you play a little bit of that
Creedence song

Daddy had a plan
He asked that girl to marry
With a brand new wife
They're living on rock & roll
Night after night
She whispers oh so sweetly
Hey you can't go wrong
If you play a little bit of that
Creedence song
Yeah, you can't go wrong if you play a little bit of that Creedence song

Do do
Do do
Do do

    O velho bom rock and roll tocado pelo seu grande mestre!

  26. Thomas James

    This is awesome. I notice little licks and riffs from several Creedence songs within this song

  27. Michel Bilodeau

    - nice pluckin'.

  28. Vincenzo Vagaggini

    @blueyzarsoff1. I agree that the actual sound of John is different from the old Creedence. I think it to be a good thing. It is almost impossibile to write many different good songs with the same mix of music (blues/rock/gospel/country). I think that when Creedence disbanded John had exausted it's creativity. It took almost 15 years before he succeded in writing new good songs. I also think "Don't you wish it was true" to be best song he ever wrote, but it took 45 year before he succeeded in reaching the old hights. This one is a very good song and it so because it has not the old tune: it sounds different.

    Richard Grandmont

    It does and it doesn't, but yeah.... it's classic Fogerty. "Revival" is a tremendous album, worthy of the Creedence era.

  29. ALEX Callejas

    M piraten mas k un corrido d moda



  31. ALBERT V S


  32. Creedence Jordan

    My name is creedence!

  33. Green River

    John Fogerty hace muy buenos temas de rock, todavia sigue demostrando por qué creedence tuvo tanto éxito.

    Ni Na

    tal cual el fue el la corriente del cable del grupo sin el nada

  34. zootman2020

    NO possible way there should be 32 dislikes for a great tune like this!!! 32 people should lose their musical ears...

    ʙʀᴏᴏᴋᴇ ʟᴇᴇ

    Baby Girl people are nuts!


    Probably the ex members of CCR and their wives, cousins, etc.

  35. marcone lima

    muito legal

  36. Kevin O'Brien

    About 20 years ago was standing in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and I looked over to see John with a woman standing in this small room with my wife and I... just smiled and walked a way....

  37. france candido de oliveira Franceoliveira

  49. SM NONA

    There are alien starships out there somewhere 40 lightyears away that are playing Creedence Clearwater on their intercoms as they vector in for Earth. Save your old cassettes and you can trade them in for a ride to Glory.

  50. overtherainbow59 your comment. I'd put Tom first though.

  51. overtherainbow59

  59. standingontruth1

    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Have u lied? Have u stolen? Jesus said if you look at a woman with lust you have committed adultery with here in your heart. have u done that?

    If God judge’s u by the Ten Commandments will u be innocent or guilty? Heaven or Hell? Does this concern you?
    Do u need a Savior from your sins?
    Jesus (The Son of God)came, lived a sinless life, died on the cross (for our sins) and rose again on the third


    John, I'm a Anglo-Portuguese1946'er thrilled with your music since 1968 the CCR's Hits. Great times. Wish you the best.


    I bow down. This new era of music has nothing on your authenticty and organic approach. I need to go back to my roots. thank you for opening my eyes to REAL songwriting John.

  64. David Abrahamsson

    Best singer in the world. Nuff said, Tom Jones a close second place.

  65. technocrash09

    @jenetik0 Is that sarcasm or are you being mean. I'm hoping sarcasm because if it is the latter, that's just wrong.


  66. technocrash09

    Not only can he play and sing better than most performers of the last half century, he can turn around and change his shirt faster than any human alive!!!!!!!!!

  82. simonmoves

    sour grapes john F-what about making peace with the rest of the guys from ccr-doug and stu-theres only 3 of you-and one short life--you love performing to the public-you deprive us of the re-union-heres the chance to be not like the beatles-it will be good viberations for all----otherwise-you can sing all night with the scars that wont heal-and things that you can solve now--stop being the loneranger.CCR WAS BAND NOT A SOLO ACT.
