              LODI   Creedence Clearwater Revival



INTRO:    |G     |G     |D   C   |G

|G                 |G      |C             |G
Just about a year ago,   I set out on the road
|G         D/F#     |Em    D   |C                   |D
Seeking my fame and fortune,   lookin' for a pot of gold.
|G         D/F#    |Em        D      |C                   |G
Things got bad and things got worse, I guess you know the tune.
|G           |D             |C          |G
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again.

Rode in on the Greyhound, 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, I'm stuck in Lodi again.

INSTRUMENTAL:   |G    |G    |D  C  |G        |G    |G    |D7  C  |G

The man from the magazine, said I was on my way.
Somewhere I lost connections, I ran out of songs to play.
I came into town a one night stand,  looks like my plans fell through.
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again.

INSTRUMENTAL (changes key):   |D    |A    |E    |A    |A

|A              |A          |D              |A
If I only had a dollar, for every song I've sung,
|A        E/G#      |F#m   E          |D               |E
And every time I've had to play while people sat there drunk;
    |A       E/G#      |F#m  E    |D              |A
You know I'd catch the next train back to where I live.
|A           |E             |D       |A
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again.
|A           |E             |D       |A         
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again.

OUTRO:   |A    |A    |D    |A        |A    |A    |D    |A
         (continue and fade out)
