John Fogerty – Porterville lyrics

But you won't catch me goin' back down there alone
Things they said when I was young
Are quite enough to get me hung
I don't care! I don't care!

They came and took my dad away to serve some time
But it was me that paid the debt he left behind
Folks said I was full of sin, because I was the next of kin.
I don't care! I don't care!

Folks were out one night to put me up a fence

But you can guess that I've been runnin' ever since
Ain't no one that's 'bout to help, but
I'll keep on, I tell myself
I don't care! I don't care!

Ain't no one that's 'bout to help, but
I'll keep on, I tell myself
I don't care! I don't care!
I don't care! I don't care!
I don't care! I don't care!
