BAD MOON RISING

Live 02 Oct 2004 version


[Bruce Springsteen (spoken intro):] Thank you ???. Thank you. Welcome John, John Fogerty, come on.
[John Fogerty (spoken):] ??? tell you all that these are great group of people to be working with. These guys are so wonderful).

[Fogerty]
I see the bad moon rising
I see the devil on the way
I see earthquakes and lightning
I see bad time today

Well don't go 'round tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
???!

[Bruce]
Well I hear hurricanes blowin'
Yeah
I know the end it's coming soon
??? the rivers overflowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Well don't go 'round tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
Come on!

[Fogerty]
Got your things together
Hope you're quite prepared to die
[Bruce]
Well it looks like we're in for nasty weather
Yeah one eye is taken for an eye

[Bruce and Fogerty]
Well don't go 'round tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Well don't go 'round tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise


The above lyrics are for the live 02 Oct 2004 performance with John Fogerty, at Gund Arena, Cleveland, OH, during the Vote For Change tour.
