Born On The Bayou Lyrics

by John Fogerty

Now, when I just was a little boy
Standin' to my daddy's knee
My poppa said, "Son, don't let the man get you
And do what he done to me"

'Cause I get your law
Did you run down now

Well 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
[Incomprehensible]

Well wish I was back on the Bayou
Rollin' with some Cajun Queen
Wishin' I was a fast freight train
Just a chooglin' on down to New Orleans

Born on the Bayou
Born on the Bayou
Born on the Bayou
[Incomprehensible]
