Another great Creedence Clearwater Revival song from the late 60’s early 70’s period. It was about to end- the hits and the group- they had 2 more Top 40 hits in them before breaking up. While many have seen the song as a commentary on the Vietnam War and the dissent in America at the time- Fogerty has said in interviews that it was about the discord going on in CCR at the time. The band had exceeded all expectations- they had all this great success- were rich and famous and the members of the band were depressed and unhappy. Great song whatever it’s about. “Hey Tonight” the b-side also got a lot of airplay.
