Grateful Dead

Born On The Bayou

Lyrics By: John Fogerty
Music By: John Fogerty

Now, when I was just a little boy Standin' to my Daddy's knee My poppa said, "Son, don't let the man get you Do what he done to me" 'Cause he'll get you 'Cause he'll get you now, now

And I can remember the fourth of July Runnin' through the backwood, bare And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' Chasin' down a hoodoo there Chasin' down a hoodoo there

Born on the Bayou Born on the Bayou Born on the Bayou

Wish I was back on the Bayou Rollin' with some Cajun Queen Wishin' I were a fast freight train Just a chooglin' on down to New Orleans

Played by John Fogerty with the Grateful Dead on 3 November 1991 at the memorial for Bill Graham. Also played once at a Furthur Jam on 8 July 1996.
