Lodi Lyrics

Just about a year ago, I set out on the road,
Seekin' my fame and fortune, lookin' for a pot of gold.
Things got bad, and things got worse, I guess you know the tune.
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again.

Rode in on a Greyhound, I'll be walkin' out...

    I`m 32 yrs old and my mother once told me Lodi meant smokin on old die young and everytime John hit a slump he`d go back to the addiction hence the chorus believe what you will we talking hippie days and drugs were given code words

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song is about a struggling singer who arrives in a town and gets stuck in a rut of performing at a dive.

    Perhaps it's reminiscent of an experience John Fogerty had when he started into the music business...

    Lodi is the name of several US cities and the one in which John Foggerty is suspected of referring to in the CCR hit "Lodi" is in California. Hence: "Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again."
