Lodi, song written by John Fogerty and performed by Creedence
Clearwater Revival. Recorded in March 1969 , It was released in
April, four months before the album, as the B-side of Bad Moon
Rising, the lead single from Green River. The song describes the
plight of a down-and-out musician whose career has landed him
playing a gig in the small town of Lodi, a small agricultural city in the Central Valley about 70 miles from Fogerty's hometown of Berkeley. After playing in local bars, the narrator finds himself stranded and unable to raise bus or train fare to leave. Fogerty later said he had never actually visited Lodi before writing this song, and simply picked it for the song because it had the coolest sounding name. However, the song unquestionably references the town's reputation as an uninteresting farm settlement, although the narrator does not mention any specific complaints. The song's chorus, Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again, has been the theme of several city events in Lodi.
Info: wikipedia

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 will know
the tune
Oh ! Lord, Stuck in Lodi again
