℗ 1970 Fantasy Records FANT 8410

Creedence Clearwater Revival  1970  Pendulum

Pendulum is the sixth album by American band CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL. It was also the final Creedence album with rhythm guitarist TOM FOGERTY who left the group shortly after this album was released. The group continued as a trio. The most sonically adventurous of Creedence albums, Pendulum is noted for its widespread use of horns and keyboards in contrast to the group's previous albums, which were dominated by guitar. A female backing chorus even appears on one track. Among several lesser-known Fogerty gems (Pagan Baby, Sailor's Lament, It's Just a Thought) were two top-ten hits, Hey Tonight and Have You Ever Seen the Rain?. Both songs reached number eight in 1971. It also contains their only Avant-Garde venture Rude Awakening #2.

Sailor's Lament

Woke up early feelin' light, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Somebody got to me last night, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Sat down for a friendly duel, (Shame, it's a shame.)
With one-eyed jacks 'n' jokers, too, (Shame, it's a shame.)

Ooh, sailor man, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Ooh, sailor man. (Shame, it's a shame.)

Poormouth Henry turned on me, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Said, "Boy, I'm gonna pick you clean." (Shame, it's a shame.)

Ooh, sailor man, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Ooh, sailor man. (Shame, it's a shame.)
Oh!

Henry said, "Don't you mess that pile," (Shame, it's a shame.)
Had three aces 'n' he had five. (Shame, it's a shame.)

Ooh, sailor man, (Shame, it's a shame.)
Ooh, sailor man. (Shame, it's a shame.)

Shame, it's a shame. Shame, it's a shame.
Shame, it's a shame. Shame, it's a shame.
Shame, it's a shame. Shame, it's a shame.

Chameleon

You took me runnin' up a wrong way street.
When we got there, you said, "Can't you read?"
I must be blind, but now and then I see
Another number where mine used to be.

You keep on changin' your face, like a Chameleon.
You keep on changing your face like a Chameleon.

I say what's up, and then you say it's down.
I see triangles, and you say it's round, round, round.
Saw an empty glass; you said it's full.
Lord, it's so hot, then you come on cool, cool.

You keep on changin' your face, like a Chameleon.
You keep on changing your face like a Chameleon.

You keep on changin' your face, like a Chameleon.
You keep on changing your face like a Chameleon.

You keep on changin' your face, like a Chameleon.
You keep on changing your face like a Chameleon.

You keep on changin' your face, like a Chameleon.
You keep on changing your face like a Chameleon.

Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

(John Fogerty)

Someone told me long ago,
theres a calm, before the storm
I know, it's been coming for sometime
Be it so, and so I say
Little rain and sun by day
I know, shining down like water

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down, down this day
Coming down, down this day

Yes for days and days before
Sun is rain and cold is hot
I know, in this place got all my found
Thru the circles fast and slow
There for every moment goes
I know, I can't stop, I wonder

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down, down this day

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down, down this day

I wanna know

(Wish I Could) Hideaway

Howdy, friend, beggin' your pardon,
Is there somethin' on your mind?
You've gone and sold all your belongings,
Is that something in your eye?
Well, I know you really never
Liked the way it all goes down;
Go on, Hideaway.

What's that you say?
We're all bound for the graveyard;
Oooh, I wish you well.
Think it's gonna rain,
Oh, what's the diff'rence,
Is there some way I can help?

'Cause you know, I'm gonna miss you
When you're gone, oh, Lord,
Wish I Could Hideaway

Hold on, give yourself a chance,
I can hear the leavin' train.

All aboard! Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!
Oooh, I wish you well.
See you soon, maybe tomorrow.
You can never tell;

'Cause you know, I'm gonna miss you
When you're gone, oh,
Wish I could Hideaway

Hideaway, hideaway, hideaway, hideaway.
Hideaway, hideaway,
Hideaway, hideaway.

Born to Move

Ev'ry day I'm gonna strut that stuff.
When the music's loud I can't get enough.
Singin' hi, singin' hi,
Come on feet, Teach yourself to move.
People shuff'lin' up and down again.
Unhappy faces ain't gonna get you in.
Singin' hi, singin' hi,
Come on people, Teach yourself to move.

Hey, hey! Hey, all right!

Spread the news, we're goin' have some fun.
Let it go, movin' son-of-a-gun.
Singin' hi, signin' hi,
Come on feet, We was Born To Move.

Hey, hey, Lord! Come on, move it, now boy!

Hey Tonight

Hey, Tonight,
Gonna be tonight,
Don't you know I'm flyin'
Tonight, tonight.
Hey, c'mon,
Gonna chase tomorrow
Tonight, tonight.

Gonna get it to the rafters,
Watch me now.
Jody's gonna get religion
All night long.

Hey, c'mon,
Gonna hear the sun
Tonight, tonight.

Gonna get it to the rafters,
Watch me now.
Jody's gonna get religion
All night long.

Aaaah!
Hey, Tonight,
Gonna be tonight,
Don't you know I'm flyin'
Tonight, tonight.
Tonight, tonight.

It's Just a Thought

It's just a thought
But I've noticed somethin' strange,
Gettin' harder to explain;
All the years are passin' by and by,
Still I don't know what makes it go;
Who said to wait and you'll see?

It's just a thought
But I wondered if you knew
That the song up there is you.
They can't take it from you
If you don't give it away;
Don't give it away; Ooh (It's given away.)

It's just a thought
But the word has come too late
That a bad idea will take
Just about a lifetime to explain,
And don't you see,
Good one's gonna be much longer;
Who's gonna wait, just to see?

Molina

Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?

She's daughter to the mayor,
Messin' with the sheriff,
Drivin' in a blue car,
She don't see no red light.

Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?

She's comin' in the mornin'
Lookin' a disaster,
Drivin' in the prowl car,
Spent the night in jail.

Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Oh!

Sheriff gonna go far
Drivin' to the state house,
If she makes a million,
Papa can retire.

Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?

Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
Moli-i-i-i-na, where you goin' to?
