I have borrowed from all the other TABs & put together one easy to follow & 
complete version. I take no credit for their work.

Born On The Bayou
CCR

E7                          
When I was just a little boy
E7                           D A
A-standin' to my daddy's knee
E7                                          
My papa said, "Son, don't let the man getcha
E7                        D A   
And do what he done to me"  
E7                   
'Cause he'll get you, 'Cause he'll get you now, now.
E7 
And I can remember the Fourth of July
E7                                  D A
A-runnin' through the backwoods bare
E7
And I can still hear that old hound dog barkin'
E7                          D A  E7                         D A
Chasin' down a hoodoo there,     chasin' down a hoodoo there

E7                D A
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...  Do it, Do it

Repeat the intro  X2

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
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...
Born on the bayou...  Do it, Do it

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, chasin' down a hoodoo there


Chorus


Repeat the intro to the end...
