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...

Old fart at play
