Bad Moon Rising
Words & Music:
John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
You can find many versions of this song in the guitar mags. The October 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar has the words & chords in D. Guitar World has a complete 2 guitar & bass transcription in E in both the October 2001 issue and a later one. It is a bone-simple tune.
D A G D [etc.]
I see a bad moon rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.
Don't go around tonight.
Well, it's bound to take your life.
A G D
There's a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes a-blowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers overflowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
