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
