Who'll Stop the Rain

G - C G
G Em C G
C D Em G

Long as I remember the rain been comin' down
Clouds of myst'ry pourin' confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages tryin' to find the sun
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain

I went down Virginia seekin' shelter from the storm
Caught up in the fable I watched the tower grow
Five year plans and new deals wrapped in golden chains
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain

Heard the singers playin', how we cheered for more


Proud Mary

Intro: / C A C A C AG F - D - - - /

Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

/ D - / / / /

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

/ A - / Bm - / D - - - / ( / / ... )

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a city
'Til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river



Just about a year ago, I set out on the road
Seekin' my fame and fortune, lookin' for a pot of gold
Thing got bad, and things got worse, I guess you know the tune
Oh, Lord, stuck in Lodi again

/ G - C G / - Em C D7 / G Em C G / - D C G /

Rode in on the Greyhound but I'll be walkin' out if I go
I was just passin' 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

The man from the magazine said I was on my way
Somewhere I lost connection, ran out of songs to play


Down on the Corner

Early in the evenin', just about supper time
Over by the courthouse, they're starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner, trying to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

/ C - G C / / F - C - / C - G C /

Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

/ F C G C / F C / G C /

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gutbass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo


Born on the Bayou

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 an'
Do what he done to me"
'Cause he'll get you
'Cause he'll get you now, now

/ E7 - - DA / :

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 (3x)

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
