Subject: Up around the bend: Creedence Clearwater Revival 

Here it is - the best song that CCR have ever recorded with one of 
the most ear-catching riffs I have ever heard. It sound so good and 
it's so easy to play. It gets even better when John Fogerty's 
growling vocals come into it.
I worked this out myself, so I'm not sure if it's correct

UP AROUND THE BEND - Creedence Clearwater Revival  
J.C  Fogerty
Album: Cosmos Factory (1970) (can also be found on various greatest 
hits compilations that CCR have released every couple of years. 
Recent ones include the 21st anniversary collection (1990) and double 
CD Keep on Chooglin' (1995))

By the way, does anyone have a guitar tab (not chords) for the verses 
and the saxophone bit in "As long as I can see the light" from CCR. 
If so, send it - I desperatly need it!.

Here comes....

9/11 means slide from fret 9 to fret 11

intro

E---------------10-------------------------------10---------------------

D
Theres a place up ahead and I'm going 
A                                       D
just as fast as my feet can fly
D
Come away come away if you're going
A                                 A
Leave the sinking ship behind

CHORUS:
G                  A       D
Come on the rising wind
G                     A               D              
We're going up around the bend

Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get while the getting's good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neons turn to wood

CHORUS

(repeat intro twice and then strum chorus chords 
or play that mini solo if you can - I can't!)

Oooh  Catch a ride to the end of the highway
And we'll meet by the big red tree
There's a place up ahead and I'm going 
Come along come along with me

CHORUS

  Then there's this bit which is probably wrong 
but as a guide, it should be enough for you to work it out

E-----2---3---5------2---3---5-------2---3---5----2-----------
B-----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------


E----2---3---5------2---3----5-----2------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------3-------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------

fades out with this and John Fogerty going Doo Doo Doo Doo
along with the tune.
