			CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL
			____________________________
			_____Sweet Hitch-Hiker______

			 written by John C. Fogerty


I got the version from the "Chronicle", but there's also a live-version on "Live in Germany"

VERSE:
D				   G
Was Ridin' along side the highway, rollin' up the country side.
D				   G
Thinkin' I'm the devil's heatwave, what you burn in your crazy mind?
D	     C	        G
Saw a slight distraction standin' by the road;
C		       A
She was smilin' there, yellow in her hair;
D
Do you wanna, I was thinkin', would you care.


CHORUS:
A
Sweet Hitch-A-Hiker,
			   G		D
We could make music at the Greasy King.
A
Sweet Hitch-A-Hiker,
			G
Won't you ride on my fast machine?


VERSE:
D				   G
Cruisin' on thru the junction, I'm flyin' 'bout the speed of sound,
D					G
Noticin' peculiar function, I ain't no roller coaster show me down.
D		  C	 G
I turned away to see her, Woah! she caught my eye,
C			A
But I was rollin' down, movin' too fast;
D
Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can it last.


CHORUS

SOLO during D  C  G  C  A  D

VERSE:
D					 G
Was busted up along the highway, I'm the saddest ridin' fool alive.
D					       G
Wond'ring if you're goin' in my way, won't you give a poor boy a ride?
D		 C      G
Here she comes a ridin', Lord, She's flyin' high.
C			  A
But she was rollin' down, movin' too fast;
D
Do you wanna, She was thinkin' can I last.


Then repeat the chorus 3 times and fade out. Dat's it.


Another great number of America's phantastic Creedence chaps...

Wow! My first transcription!
I should've been born 30 years ago, when those guys were rockin'...
-you can hardly listen to today's music...

hi, fine tabbingwork,
but when I played it, I found it even more amusing to alternate between the 3rd and 5th fret on the second string, to be count from down to up (so from hihg to low in sound), while youre playing a D-chord, like on the beginning of the song
