LODI                    Creedence Clearwater Revival


Bb  F  Eb


Bb                       Eb              Bb

Just about a year ago  I set out on the road

                    Gm           Eb                   F

Seekin' my fame and fortune  And looking for a pot of gold

Bb               Gm                  Eb                 Bb

Things got bad,  Things got worse  I Guess you know the tune

         F              Eb          Bb     

Oh lord, stuck in Lodi again  



I rode in on a grey hound  I'll be walking out if I go

I was just passing through  Must be seven months or more

Ran out of time and money  Looks like they took my friends

Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again 


LEAD  Bb    Eb   Bb       Bb   F   Eb  Bb


The man from the magazine  Said I was on my way

Somewhere I lost connection  Ran out of songs to play

Came into town on a one night stand  Looks like my plans fell through

Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again


CHORD CHANGE    F   C   G    C


C                           F            C

If I only had a dollar  For every song I sung

                Am                 F                G

And everytime I had to play  While people sat there drunk

    C                  Am          F               C

You know I'd catch the next train  Back to where I live

C        G                F                 C     G               F     C  

  Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again          Oh Lard, stuck in a Lodi again
