by CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

from their album COSMO'S FACTORY (1970)

 
version franšaise
Information and the history of the band are to be found here .

Little to say about this old tremolo blues about a young soldier's nightmare.  I got the sound with a simple ZOOM GFX 707 and my mex tele ( now equipped with Seymour Duncan humbuckers) . 

The guitar is in standard tuning. The bass plays a repetitive simple single string pattern.

I tabbed only a few notes from the solo that is in fact played with a harmonica but it is simple to improvise with a guitar.

I recorded a demo which I join in mp3. I skipped the intro in the original recording when mixed sounds supposed to simulate the jungle start the tune. I also skipped the second sung verse in which the guitar part is the same as in the first.

You can download the mp3 demo  here :

Thought it was a nightmare,
Lord, it's all so true,
They told me, "Don't go walkin' slow.
The devil's on the loose."

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, don't look back to see. 

Thought I heard a rumblin'
Callin' to my name,
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim!"

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, don't look back to see. 

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke,
"Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill the land with smoke."

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, don't look back to see. 

Tabbed by myself . All suggestions welcome here.
