Creedence Clearwater Revival – Bad Moon Rising lyrics

I see a bad moon rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see those bad times today.

Don't go around tonight,
Well 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
.

Well don't go around tonight,
Well it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

Well don't go around tonight,
Well it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Don't come around tonight,
Well it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

    This song refers back to the Irish ballad "The Rising of the Moon" about the failed rebellion of 1798. Although the United Irish did not defeat the British army that year, The incredible bravery of the pikesmen against soldiers with guns inspired every rebellion until the Irish were at last successful. Bad moon rising captures the spirit of those fighting against the Vietnam war, which was also futile, and longer term anger against those who exploit us.
