Song title: Travellin' band

(Fogerty) by Credence Clearwater Revival (Fantasy 637), 1970

Travellin' band

Seven-thirty-seven comin' out of the sky
Won't you take me down to Memphis on a midnight ride
I wanna move
Playin' in a travelin' band
Yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand
Playin' in a travelin' band

Take me to the hotel, baggage gone -- oh, well
Come on, come on, won't you get me to my room
I wanna move
Playin' in a travelin' band
Yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand
Playin' in a travelin' band

Listen to the radio talkin' 'bout the last show
Someone got excited, had to call the state militia
Wanna move
Playin' in a travelin' band
Yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand
Playin' in a travelin' band

Here we come again on a Saturday night
With your fussin' and your fightin' won't you get me to the rhyme
I wanna move
Playin' in a travelin' band
Yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand
Playin' in a travelin' band

Notes: Part of the Detroit Medley in 1984.
