Looking Out My Back Door

Listen to the Midi File of "Looking Out My Back Door"

Creedence Clearwater Revival

Fogerty
1970

Just got home from Illinois,
Lock the front door, oh boy!
Got to sit down,
Take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in,
Pretty soon I'm singin',
Doo, doo, doo
Lookin' out my back door.

There's a giant doing cartwheels,
A statue wearin' high heels.
Look at all the happy creatures
Dancing on the lawn.
A dinosaur Victrola
Listenin' to Buck Owens.
Doo, doo, doo
Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants
Are playin' in the band.
Won't you take a ride
On the flyin' spoon?
Wond'rous apparition
Provided by magician.
Doo, doo, doo
Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants
Are playin' in the band.
Won't you take a ride
On the flyin' spoon?
Bother me tomorrow,
Today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo
Lookin' out my back door.

Forward troubles Illinois,
Lock the front door, oh boy!
Look at all the happy creatures
Dancing on the lawn.
Bother me tomorrow,
Today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo
Lookin' out my back door.
