Sweet Hitch-Hiker
Creedence Clearwater Revival Lyrics


Was ridin' along side the highway, rollin' up the country side
Thinkin' I'm the devil's heatwave, what you burn in your crazy mind?
Saw a slight distraction standin' by the road
She was smilin' there, yellow in her hair
Do you want to, I was thinkin', would you care

Sweet hitch-a-hiker
We could make music at the Greasy King
Sweet hitch-a-hiker
Won't you ride on my fast machine?

Cruisin' on through the junction, I'm flyin' 'bout the speed of sound
Noticin' peculiar function, I ain't no roller coaster show me down
I turned away to see her, woa! she caught my eye
But I was rollin' down, movin' too fast
Do you want to, she was thinkin' can it last

Sweet hitch-a-hiker
We could make music at the Greasy King
Sweet hitch-a-hiker
Won't you ride on my fast machine?

Was busted up along the highway, I'm the saddest ridin' fool alive
Wond'ring if you're goin' in my way, won't you give a poor boy a ride?
Here she comes a ridin', lord, she's flyin' high
But she was rollin' down, movin' too fast
Do you want to, she was thinkin' can I last

Sweet hitch-a-hiker
We could make music at the Greasy King
Sweet hitch-a-hiker
Won't you ride on my fast machine?

Sweet hitch-a-hiker
We could make music at the Greasy King
Sweet hitch-a-hiker
Won't you ride on my fast machine?

Sweet hitch-a-hiker
We could make music at the Greasy King
Sweet hitch-a-hiker
Won't you ride on my fast machine?

"A very long life" with crap songs written and sung by Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford? 🤣

Tom Fogerty wrote and performed lead vocals when CCR was known as The Golliwogs. His songs were terrible which is why John took over as the songwriter and lead vocalist when they became CCR. Tom Fogerty left CCR to embark on a solo career that went nowhere. Each album was terrible and got worse. He never improved in an entire decade both writing and singing.

Stu Cook and Doug Clifford were given the opportunity to both sing and write songs on Mardi Gras. The result was a disaster as both the singing and writing was crap. They later reformed as "Creedence Clearwater Revisited" and neither one of them attempted to write their own material when they had the full opportunity to do so.

So, all this proves is that John Fogerty was correct to have control of the band since his songwriting and vocals was CCR. Tom, Stu, and Doug were jealous of John which was obvious. When they were given the opportunity to write and sing, they totally bombed which made the animosity grow even more.

Tom, Stu, and Doug were not songwriters or singers. They were excellent musicians at playing their own instruments. Their jealousy and quest to become something they were not was what broke up the band.

You have no argument here since the material they put out was total crap and it would never have a "long life" amongst listeners because nobody listens to the garbage they already put out.

@jer quake Concordo, igual ao whisky, e no Brasil, igual cachaça, quanto mais velho melhor.
Fico imaginando quem ouviu essa canção em vinil, deve ter sido bárbaro e selvagem.

This song reminds me of times when freedom could still be felt within. Great singer voice.
