Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ’70 “Green River” Performance Will Take You Back In Time
Rockin On Down The Green River
In 1970, Creedence Clearwater Revival rocked England’s Royal Albert Hall with an iconic performance of their hometown hit “Green River” and it set Brits’ hearts aflame.
“I can hear the bull frog callin’ me. wonder if my rope’s still hangin’ to the tree. Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water, shoe fly, dragon fly, get back to your mother…”
Decked out in his usual flannel and jeans, John is really on his game during this spectacular performance of classic hit “Green River” that channels great past memories of his family on the Push Creek in Winters, California.
Interesting Fact: John Fogerty has said that Green River is his favorite Creedence Clearwater Revival album, in part because it sounds like the ’50s albums by the likes of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash that came out of Sun Records in Memphis.
As you listen and sing along with the lyrics below, they really make you want to revisit your childhood camping spot, stick your toes in the mucky water and just listen to the wind gently hitting the lake’s surface.
“Green River” has always reminded us of great and happy times and it will make you remember them too! Enjoy!
