(Creedence Clearwater Revival)

737 coming out of the sky
Oh won't you take me down to Memphis on a midnight ride
I want to move

Playing in a travelling band, ee-ya!
Well I'm flying across land
Trying to get a hand
Playing in a travelling band

Take me to the hotel baggage car no where
Come on come on won't you get me to my room
I want to move

Playing in a travelling band, ee-ya!
Well I'm flying across the land
Trying to get a hand
Playing in a travelling band

Listen to the radio talking about the last show
Someone got excited, had to call the state militia
I want to move

Playing in a travelling band, ee-ya!
Well I'm flying across the land
Trying to get a hand
Playing in a travelling band, Oh-wow!

(solo)

(use walking bass)

Hell will come again on a Saturday night
Oh with your fussing and your fighting
Won't you get me to the right
I want to move

Playing in a travelling band, ee-ya!
Well I'm flying across the land
Trying to get a hand
Playing in a travelling band, oh-wow!

(guitar solo)

Oh I'm playing in a travelling band
Playing in a travelling band
Won't you get me, take me hand
Well I'm playing in a travelling band
Well I'm flying across the land
Trying to get a hand
Playing in a travelling band, oh-wow!

Hey!
