Lodi
J.C. Fogerty)

(originally performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival [1969])



Just about a year ago, I set out on the road

Seekin' my fame and fortune, I'm lookin' for a pot of gold

Things got bad and things got worse, I guess you know the tune

Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again



I boarded on the Greyhound, and I'm walkin' there, by the road

I was just passin' through, it must be seven months or more

I ran out of time and money, it looks like the two were friends

Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again



(Solo)



Man from a magazine, who said I was on my way

But somewhere I lost connection, I ran out of songs to play

I planned many times of one-night stands, it looks like my plans fell through

Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again



If I had a million dollars for every song I've sung

Or every time I had to play while people slapped their tongue

I know I'll catch the next train, back to where I live

Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again

Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again



There we go, get ready!
