Born on the Bayou chords
Creedence Clearwater Revival 1968

E7* E\E7** E\E7 E\E7 E\E7 4x

     E7*        E      E7**
Now, when I was just a little boy
E7*            E       E7**
Standin' to my Daddy's knee
   E7*          E          E7**
My poppa said, "Son, don't let the man get you an'
E7*        E       E7**
Do what he done to me"
 E7*         E7**
'Cause he'll get you
 E7*                 E7**
'Cause he'll get you mama

    E7*     E          E7**
And I can remember the fourth of July
E7*                 E         E7**  D A
Runnin' through the backwood, bare
    E7*                     E         E7**
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin'
E7*            E      E7**  D A
Chasin' down a hoodoo there
E7*            E      E7**  D A
Chasin' down a hoodoo there

E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 

E7*        E           E7**
Wish I was back on the bayou
E7*               E     E7**
Rollin' with some Cajun queen
E7*              E            E7**
Wishin' I were a fast freight train
       E7*          E       E7**
Just a chooglin' on down to New Orleans

E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 

    E7*     E          E7**
And I can remember the fourth of July
E7*                 E         E7**  D A
Runnin' through the backwood, bare

    E7*                     E         E7**
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin'
E7*            E      E7**  D A
Chasin' down a hoodoo there
E7*            E      E7**  D A
Chasin' down a hoodoo there

E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 
E7*         E E7** D A
Born on the bayou 


*  E7 = 2 finger (G 1st fret + A 2nd fret)
** E7 = 4 finger (G 1st fret + A 2nd fret + D 2nd fret + B 3rd fret) E chord + B 3rd fret

Back in the 60's and 70's we played this song extensively. However we used the E7 on the 5th fret (a C7 position on the 5th fret). Our picking pattern with this chord in place was: 5 4 2 3, 4 2 3, 4 2 3, 4 2 3, repeatedly with occasional

open 6th and 1st strings thrown into the mix.

I see my arrows didn't show for the pick pattern. Basically strike down on the 5th and 4th strings while up stroke the 2nd and 3rd strings.
