RUN THROUGH THE JUNGLE

Original Creedence Clearwater Revival version


Whoa thought it was a nightmare
Lord it was so true
They told me don't go walking slow
The devil's on the loose

Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Whoa don't look back to see

Thought I heard a rumbling
Calling to my name
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim"

Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Whoa don't look back to see

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke
"Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill the land with smoke"

Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Whoa don't look back to see
