Album: Creedence Clearwater Revival (1967)
  • It's been an awful long time since I been home,
    But you won't catch me goin' back down there alone.
    Things they said when I was young are quite enough to get me hung.
    I don't care! I don't care!

    They came and took my dad away to serve some time,
    But it was me that paid the debt he left behind.
    Folks said I was full of sin, because I was the next of kin.
    I don't care! I don't care!

    Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo!
    I don't care! I don't care!

    Folks were out one night to put me up a fence,
    And you can guess that I've been runnin' ever since.
    Ain't no one that's 'bout to help, and I'll keep on, I tell myself.
    I don't care! I don't care!

    I don't care! I don't care!
    I don't care! I don't care!

    Ain't no one that's 'bout to help,
    And I'll keep on, I tell myself.
    I don't care! I don't care!
    I don't care! I don't care!
    I don't care! I don't care!
    I don't care! I don't care!
    I don't care! I don't care! Writer/s: Douglas Clifford, John Cameron Fogerty, Richard Fogerty Thomas, Stuart Cook
