Creedence Clearwater Revival - Run Through The Jungle




This is often believed to be about the Vietnam War, as it referred to a "jungle" and was released in 1970. The fact that previous CCR songs such as "Who'll Stop the Rain?" and "Fortunate Son" were protests of the Vietnam War added to this theory.


In response, John Fogerty said: "I think a lot of people thought that because of the times, but I was talking about America and the proliferation of guns, registered and otherwise. I'm a hunter and I'm not antigun, but I just thought that people were so gun-happy - and there were so many guns uncontrolled that it really was dangerous, and it's even worse now. It's interesting that it has taken 20-odd years to get a movement on that position."





Lyrics


Oh thought it was a might mare

Though it come 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

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

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

Don't look back to see
