This is because the part that the second guitar plays is in sync with the lyrics.

The chorus is followed by a solo that lasts roughly 50 seconds. It basically consists of 
bends and short licks following. The second guitar strums the same chords as it does in 
chorus and a third guitar fills in halfway with random notes.

The song starts to fade out slowly, and Fogerty starts hum as he plays graceful bends 
occasional short licks at the end as he does in the solo. The second guitar strums as it 
in the chorus. About halfway from the last chorus to the end the intro/main riff is
played and then the fade out continues.
