Bad Moon Rising – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics
John Fogerty wrote this song, performed by his group, Creedence Clearwater Revival. It reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1969 and the single sold more than 2 million copies. It was the lead single from the CCR album, “Green River.” CCR played it in the key of D, which is way too high for my voice, so I played it in the key of G in order to hit the high notes without getting a hernia.
