Subject: Re: REQ: "Born on the Bayou" by CCR

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...

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. this has no tabs and also has no chords, all this is, is just lyrics. this will help nobody at all and is just a waste of space.
