Bad Moon Rising
Creedence Clearwater Revival Lyrics


I see the bad moon a-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
There's a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Well don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise, all right

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

Well don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't come around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

The beat is happy and cheery. The lyrics is like HOLY SHIT THE WORLD IS ENDING.

Sir Reality

That means that the meaning of the song aged very well

The 60s were rough, JFK killed on camera in '63, and we had to see his brains all over his wife's pink dress, April 4, 1968, MLK, Jr. killed and before we came out of shock, Bobby Kennedy was killed that June, I think. Viet Nam Death Tolls were given every day on the evening news, like the weather. CCR was one of many groups and individual artists who expressed their feelings and everyone's feelings in their own way. Check out the song, "Abraham, Martin, and John," written by a man named Holler, I think.

@MEGA Salty you’re imagining me taking offense while you should imagine everyone feeling sorry for you, gramps 😂 😂 😂

MEGA Salty

I am reading your reply about taking offense at a 43 Yr old you've never met. Imagine that.

@MEGA Salty imagine being 43 and talking about “triggering” people in a YouTube comment section.
