When john Fogerty exit the Centerfield album in 1985 i was excited. He had actually disappeared from the music scene because that 10 years. I gave up expect of ever hearing brand-new music from him. I preserved hoping he would certainly regroup through Creedence yet I didn’t know at the time that the hostile history between them. This album was extremely anticipated. Ns bought the album and also it didn’t disappoint.

You are watching: John fogerty rock and roll girl

This is the second track on Fogerty’s Centerfield album, his very first in 10 years. The song was influenced by his 12-year-old daughter, Laurie. Fogerty would watch her and also her finest friend hanging out and jokingly contact them the Rock and also Roll Girls.

The track peaked at #20 in the Billboard 100, #16 in Canada, #38 in new Zealand, and also #83 in the UK in 1985.


Rock and also Roll Girls

Sometimes i think life is just a rodeoThe cheat is come ride and make it come the bellBut there is a place, sweet together you will ever knowIn music and love and things you never tellYou watch it in their face, secrets on the telephoneA time out of time, for you and also no one else

Hey, let’s go everywhere the worldRock and roll girls, rock and also roll girls

Yeah, yeah, yeah

If I had actually my way, I’d shuffle off to BuffaloSit through the lake and watch the civilization go byLadies in the sun, listenin’ to the radioLike flower on the sand, the rainbow in mine mind

Hey, let’s go all over the worldRock and roll girls, rock and roll girls

Hey, let’s go all over the worldRock and roll girls, rock and also roll girls

Hey, let’s go almost everywhere the worldRock and roll girls, rock and also roll girls, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yes i did and I to be also. Hans i tried to like it since it was…John Fogerty. He tried to get with the times is my guess. It simply didn’t work…Swamp meets eighties…just don’t work. Ns didn’t understand why he felt prefer he had actually to execute that.

While ns think it’s fair to say it’s not fairly as strong as some of CCR’s music, “Rock and also Roll Girls” is a nice and also catchy rocker. I also like the album’s title track.

Undoubtedly, john Fogerty to be the driving force in CCR. Yet I likewise think it’s same to suggest out the other guys in that great band oftentimes are underrecognized. In mine view, it’s not a coincidence the Fogerty’s solo music in general hasn’t been as compelling together CCR. And I speak this as somebody that really digs Fogerty!

I review a book a few years ago on them. What a sad sitiuation. I deserve to see both sides but it just got hostile.I agree…with Doug Clifford…I loved his drumming and it did add a lot.Have you ever heard Tom Fogerty sing? Tom and also John sound so lot alike.

I haven’t heard this in years. Not that fond of it. His voice sound so much much better with CCR behind him. Ns never could get right into his solo stuff.

I did prefer this album but the following one ns didn’t favor at all. Eye of the Zombie…it was too eighties…and eighties didn’t to the right his music. I told Hans the sounded prefer Power Station….fine for strength Station however not for him.

Good song, though not as solid as the various other singles off that album. John’s one of the few who ever before dreamed of shuffling of to Buffalo!I had ‘eye the the Zombie’ too and also I mental I liked about half of it- can’t psychic that many of the tracks now, however I carry out recall play 4 or5 song on it rather a bit back then, however there were part duds on the too.
