Up Around The Bend

Words & Music:

John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival)


This is fully tabbed in the March-April issue of Guitar Edge.



There's a place up ahead and I'm goin'

A                  A7       D

Just as fast as my feet can fly.


Come away, come away if you're goin',

A                 A7     D

leave the sinkin' ship behind.

G         D      A

C'mon the risin' wind,

      G         D         A

We're goin' up around the bend.  Oooh!


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 neons turn to wood.

C'mon the risin' wind, we're goin' up around the bend.  Oooh!


You can ponder perpetual motion, fix your mind for a crystal day.

Always time for a good conversation, there's an ear for what you say.

C'mon the risin' wind, we're goin' up around the bend.  Oooh!


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.

C'mon the risin' wind, we're goin' up around the bend.
