THE OLD MAN DOWN THE ROAD
written and performed by John Fogerty
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

(12 measures of E7)
E7
He take-a thunder from the mountain
He take-a lightnin' from the sky
             G                 E7
He bring the strong man to his beggin' knees
            
He make the young girl's mama cry

[Chorus]
You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
    C       D            E7
The old man   is down the road

[Verse 2]
He got the voices speakin' riddles
He got eyes as black as coal
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road

(chorus, with "away" added to end of 2nd line)

(instrumental, same pattern as chorus)

[Verse 3]
He make the river call your lover
He make the barking of the hound
Put a shadow 'cross the window
When the old man comes around

(chorus; this time, add "again" to end of 2nd line
   and sing 4th line twice)

(play E7 continuously and fade)
