Song title: Run through the jungle

(Fogerty) by Creedence Clearwater Revival (Fantasy 641),1970

Run through the jungle

I thought it was a nightmare,
Buddy, it was so true,
Night you’re better not to walkin' slow
The devil's on the loose

Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle.

I thought I heard a rumble
And someone call my name,
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim!"

Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle.

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke,
He cried "Let the people see my wisdom,
Fill this land with smoke."

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

Me and Robert Williams
Out on Route Line 3
Last night they drag him out of his house
And shot him in the street
Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,

Well now the land's on fire
It's written in blood in the sky
Better go and load shotguns out of the truck
City's on fire tonight
Better wake up, lock out your window
I see your time is comin’
'Cos out across the cornfield tonight,
I see the crosses are firing

Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,
Better run through this jungle,
….
I thought it was a nightmare,
Buddy, it was so true.
