Song : Looking Out My Back Door
Band : Creedence Clearwater Revival (Ccr)

i think this is how they play it..
i watched a video on youtube and he starts with a C chord...
(http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=RqZhM75aGMg)

this sounds spot on ...
tuning depends on wich version you find  some are whole step down, some half step , some standard.


[Intro]

C    Am    F  C  G  C


[Verse 1]

C                         Am
Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy !
F              C        G 
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.
C                  Am
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singing,
F         C         G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.


[Verse 2]

C                              Am
There's a giant doing cartwheels, a statue wearin' high heels,
F               C             G
look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
C                  Am
A dinosaur Victrola, listening to Buck Owens
F         C         G            C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.


[Chorus]

G                          F            C
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band,
                    Am          G
won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon ?
C                     Am
Wond'rous apparition, provided by magician,
F        C           G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.


[Instrumental]

C    Am     F  C  G
C    Am     F  C  G  C


[Chorus]

G                          F            C
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band,
                    Am          G
won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon ?
C                   Am
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrows,
F        C          G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.

Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy !
G                 D                A
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
D                     Bm
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrows
G         D            A             D
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.

UPDATE
---------------
ok the last bit after the solo (and the solo itself) is wrong... cause there is a key change so instead play this :

solo you play A G D D B A


last verse

D B
Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy !

G D A
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.

D B
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrows

G D A D
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.

outro G D A D

HOPE THIS ISNT TO CONFUSING :)

After the solo it's Bm, not B, I think.
