John Fogerty Plays Fast-Paced “Up Around The Bend” With Sons, Shane and Tyler, And It’s So Special | Society Of Rock Videos

It’s All In The Hair

John, joined by his two sons on stage, Tyler and Shane, wowed the crowd with his old Clearwater Creedence Revival classic “Up Around The Bend” in this touching video. We can only imagine that John’s dream was to have his boys up on the stage with him, performing the hits he was playing when he was their age.

“There’s a place up ahead and I’m goin’, just as fast as my feet can fly. Come away, come away if you’re goin”

With Tyler and Shane both on electrical lead guitar roles, you can see John beaming from ear to ear to announce his boys and their impressive musical skills

Sporting the same hairdos as their father, the resemblance is uncanny, as well as the blues talent and dedication to their rhythmic crafts.

Fun Fact: When CCR toured England in the ’70s, they had to explain that “up around the bend” did not symbolize mental instability or issues considering that was the direct definition of the saying in the UK.

We love CCR and everything they stood for in a time of turmoil and fear, as this song represents hope for the future, we always feel inspired when we hear it. Seeing the pride in John’s eyes and the success he has encouraged for his boys warms and melts our hearts. Keep playin’ boys!

+ Up Around The Bend Lyrics +

There’s a place up ahead and I’m goin’
Just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away, if you’re goin’
Leave the sinkin’ ship behind

Come on the risin’ wind
We’re goin’ up around the bend
Ooh

Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get, while the gettin’s good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neon’s turn to wood

Come on the risin’ wind
We’re goin’ up around the bend
Ooh

You can ponder perpetual motion
Fix your mind on a crystal day
Always time for a good conversation
There’s an ear for, what you say

Come on the risin’ wind
We’re goin’ up around the bend
Yeah

Ooh

Catch a ride to the end of the highway
And we’ll meet by the big red tree
There’s a place up ahead and I’m goin’
Come along, come along with me

Come on the risin’ wind
We’re goin’ up around the bend
Yeah

Do-do-doo-do
Do-do-doo-do
Do-doo-do
Do-do-doo-do
Yeah

Do-do-doo-do
Do-do-doo-do
Do-do-doo
Do-do-doo
