Looking Out My Back Door

by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.

/ G - Em - / C G D - /

Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singing,
Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.

/ G - Em - / C G D G /

There's a giant doing cartwheels, a statue wearing high heels.
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.

A dinosaur Victrola listening to Buck Owens.
Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.


{bridge}

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride on the flying spoon? Doo, doo doo.

/ D - C G / G Em D - /

Wond'rous apparition provided by magician.
Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.


{bridge}

Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.

Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.

[slow down]
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.
