Creedence Clearwater Revival - 'Bad Moon Rising'

Creedence Clearwater Revival - 'Bad Moon Rising'

Such a guilty pleasure of a song. My band played this yesterday at a show in Bristol, it's one of my favourite songs to sing. There's a euphoria in the suggested encroaching darkness that makes me want to pack my 'end of days' backpack and head to the hills.


I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today
Don't go 'round tonight
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
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
I hope you got your things together
I hope you are quite prepared to die
Look's like we're in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye


Oh don't go 'round tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
There's a bad moon on the rise

Lyrics by John C. Fogerty (1969)
