SOUTHERN STREAMLINE
- John Fogerty

Mama I'm on fire
Old flame
Sweet desire
Comin' on the midnight
Comin' on the midnight train
Rollin' steel and thunder
Bring my baby back again

Roll on down the line
Big wheels rollin' right on time
Hear that whistle blowin'
Hear that engine roar and whine
Take care of my baby
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline

Chorus:
Well I got a little letter this morning
Just about the break of day
Bluebird ringin' my doorbell
Rollin' my blues away
Said honey babe we'll go steppin'
Long about Saturday night
So head it down to the station
An' everything'll be alright

Honey what's that sound
Big wheels rollin' homeward bound
See that smokestack sparkin'
Lightin' up a purple sky
Take care of my baby
Ridin' on that Southern Streamline

Instrumental

HOT ROD HEART
- John Fogerty

Ooh, let's go ridin'
Cruisin' down the open road
We can put the top down
Listen to the radio
Big ol' Buick
And a big ol' sky
Wheels on fire
And I'll tell you why
I got a hot rod heart

Ooh, let's go prowlin'
Sneakin' like we used to do
Way back in the country
Cut across the cornfields too
Big ol' Harley
And a big ol' moon
Big ol' 'gator
Puttin' on the zoom
I got a hot rod heart

Chorus:
Got a one-way ticket to the open road
Come on
Got a red line engine
And I'm rarin' to go
Put the pedal to the metal
If you want to ride
If you want to ride
Let's go

Instrumental

Ooh, let's go ridin'
Rollin' down the open road
We can put the top down
Listen to the radio
Big ol' Buick
And a big ol' sky
Wheels on fire
And I'll tell you why
I got a hot rod heart

Chorus

BLUE BOY
- John Fogerty

Way back in the hills
There's a place I know
People come from miles around
Just to watch 'Ol Dooley do the show

Chorus:
Ooh let the Blueboy play
Ooh let the Blueboy play
Gonna ride the mule
Gonna chase him too
Pullin' on-a pullin' on-a
Pullin' on-a pony
He goes . . .

Soon's the sun go down
That's when the fun begins
Hitch your wagon down the track
Up to the roadhouse
And come on in

Chorus

Instrumental

Sheriff says it late
Closin' time we got to go
But Dooley he don't want to quit
Ain't nobody feels like goin' home

Chorus

A HUNDRED AN TEN IN THE SHADE
- John Fogerty

- Way out here in the cotton
Sun beatin' down so hard
Sweat rollin' off of this shovel
Diggin' In the Devil's boneyard
Sure like a cool drink of water
Soft rag to soothe my face

Sure like a woman to talk to in this place
Chorus:

It's a hundred and ten
Hundred and ten in the shade
Goin' way down
Mama won't you carry me

Handle so hot I can't stand it
Might shrivel up and blow away
Noonday sun make you crazy
Least, that's what the old men say

Bottom land hard as a gravestone
Couldn't cut it with an axe
Gonna lay me down right here
And that's a fact

Chorus

Sometimes late in the evenin'
Everything is quiet and still
I set here and think about leavin'
Lord I guess I never will
Heartache down in that city
Bright light scares me anyway
Sure like a woman to talk to in this place

Chorus

RATTLESNAKE HIGHWAY
- John Fogerty

It may look easy
When you look at me
But it took years of effort
To become the mess that you see

Now what kind of woman
Take you for a ride
Down the Rattlesnake Highway
An' leave you busted up inside
All busted up inside

Chorus: Smiles like a Cobra
With her Rattlesnake eyes
'n leave you for dead on the highway
Just mumblin' at the sky

She did me wrong
She did me so wrong
She did me wrong
Tell me . . . she did me

Instrumental

Chorus

Now she did me wrong
She did me so wrong
She did me wrong
You know she did me so wrong
Get me outta here

BRING IT DOWN TO JELLY ROLL
- John Fogerty

Well, if you want
To ease your mind
You just go on
Take it to the river
When you're down
Well, that's alright
You just bring it down to Jelly Roll

We're gonna run
A-jump and shout
We're gonna slide
Way back in the country
There's a place
Where they treat you right
You just bring it down to Jelly Roll

Instrumental

The little girls
Way down south
They got their way
Honey drippin' from their mouth
If you ever get some luck
You better bring it down to Jelly Roll

Now look at me
Lord, I ain't got a dime
But I can dance
Lord, I'm jumping all the time
I live honey, straight to the bone
I just bring it down to Jelly Roll

Instrumental

Well, if you want
To ease your mind
You just go on
Take it to the river
When you're down
Well that's alright
You just bring it down to Jelly Roll

WALKING IN A HURRICANE
-John Fogerty

Shadows fallin` in my room
Ghost riders dancin` on the moon
Night is closin` in again

Clutchin` to my tremblin` bed
Call your name `til I`m out of my head
Walkin` the backstreets
Lookin` for clues
I got to get you back
If it`s the last thing I do

Chorus:

I`ll go walkin` in a hurricane
I`ll come crawlin` in a drivin` rain
I`ll keep searchin` `til I go insane
I got to have your love

Lookin` out across the lights
I know you´re out there
Running with the night
`Round and `round
A moth to the flame
And when I finally get you home
It`s just a matter of time `til you`re gone
Heartache and shadow draggin` you down
This chain around your heart
Gonna put you in the ground

Chorus

SWAMP RIVER DAYS
- John Fogerty

Two-lane Shinin' in the July dust
Heat risin' off the road
Out in front of my truck
Pulled my pick-up over the hill
Down the slide gravel through the cat-tails
Give me those Swamp River days again

Sat down in the shade of a Cottonwood tree
Pretty soon the swamp critters' callin' me
Skinny river kids swim in my mind
Hucklebums on Cane-Pole Time
Give me those Swamp River days again

Old memories out in the crick
Playin' hooky with a hobo stick
Old memories startin' to fade
Take me away

Instrumental

Cody River playin' on the radio
Takes me back to a girl I used to know
Sweet Susie do you think about me
That was good as it's ever gonna be
Give me those Swamp River days again
Give me those Swamp River days again

RAMBUNCTIOUS BOY
- John Fogerty

My oh my I'm a restless guy
Got a home everywhere I go

Well I ain't good lookin'
And I ain't so smart
But baby I'm a sensitive guy
I ain't done everything there is to do
But I'll damn sure give it a try

I'm a lookin'
I'm a lookin'
For a big time bookin' with you
So come on baby
Let's go howlin' at the honky-tonk moon

Chorus:
I'm a rambunctious boy
Rambunctious boy
Oh my I'm a restless guy
Got a home everywhere I go
I'm-a trouble on the run
Heartbreakin' son of a gun
Oh yeah I'm a rambunctious boy

Instrumental

I been workin' all week in the big boss yard
I 'bout had it up to here
I ain't got time for a Caribbean cruise
Just give me a song and a beer

I feel like rompin'
Stompin'
And broncin' it up real loud
So come on baby
Tell your girlfriend
Three's a crowd

Chorus

Instrumental

JOY OF MY LIFE
- John Fogerty

I tiptoed in the room
I know you got to have your rest
She says, 'Come lay beside me,
I've been waitin' since you left'
She's sweet to me
Must be the luckiest man alive
And did I tell you baby
You are the joy of my life

First time that I saw you
Ooh, you took my breath away
I might not get to heaven
But I walked with the Angels that day

She takes me by the hand
I am the luckiest man alive
And did I tell you baby
You are the joy of my life

Instrumental

Some may have their riches
Some may have their worldly fame
Long as I have you
I'll treasure each and every day
Just take me by the hand
I am the luckiest man alive
And did I tell you baby
You are the joy of my life
And did I tell you baby
You are the joy of my life

BLUE MOON NIGHTS
- John Fogerty

Help me fellas
I'm feelin' kind-a weak
The way I'm livin' just ain't right
I need somebody watch over me
All my blue moon nights

I want a girl to take me by the hand
Follow me right down the line
Hold me gently while we dance
All my blue moon nights

Chorus:

Heaven only knows I don't want to be
Just a fool, passin' through
Won't you send an angel to walk with me
All my blue moon nights

Instrumental

Help me fellas
It's gettin' kind-a late
Runnin' out of precious time
She might pass me while I waste
All my blue moon nights

Chorus

BAD BAD BOY
- John Fogerty

Bad bad boy
You're drivin' me crazy
Bad bad boy
Shame on you
Shame on you

Where you been all night
Messin' with your friends
You act so mean
And you talk so funny
There you go again

Bad bad boy
You won't amount to nothin'
Bad bad boy
Shame on you
Shame on you

Chorus:

Where you been
What you been doin'
Where you been
What you been doin'
Bad bad boy

Instrumental

Bad bad boy
Can't you be more like your brother
Bad bad boy
Shame on you
