Born On The Bayou

Lyrics

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.

I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.

John Fogerty what can you say great songwriter great vocalist! Got his a** ripped off by Fantasy Records they stole him blind he still recovering from that crap! That explains why he tours by himself now he got too smart too late, but you gotta love the man he rips it!

A "hoodoo" is a ghost? Did you Google that, Crunchy?

@mierfr9 That Super Bee must have been one awesome and expensive ride. I wouldn't want to have to mess around w/the throttle linkages and mixtures on 3 two barrel carbs though. Did it just idle off of one of the 3 2-barrel carbs? Or all three?
