  • Outside my window, I can hear the radio,
    And I know that motor wagon is ready to fly,
    'Cause it's almost Saturday night.

    Bye bye, tomorrow, Jody's gone to the rodeo,
    And you know some good old boys are ready to ride,
    'Cause it's almost Saturday night.

    [Chorus]
    Gonna push the clouds away,
    Let the music have it's way,
    Let it steal my heart away,
    And you know I'm-a-goin'!

    Outside the ringing, the night train
    Is bringin' me home,
    When you hear that locomotion get ready to ride,
    'Cause it's almost Saturday night.

    [Chorus]

    Outside the ringing, the night train
    Is bringin' me home,
    When you hear that locomotion get ready to ride,
    'Cause it's almost Saturday night.
    Oh yeah! Writer/s: FOGERTY

  • Karla from New York, NyLOVE this FOGERTY song -- the guitars and vocals defy us to stay in our seats!!! I released Almost Saturday Night on my first solo album IS THIS A COOL WORLD OR WHAT? at the same time as Dave Edmunds -- the fabulous Fogerty song was in the zeitgeist 1981!!! Hear mine in concert live with my Is this a Cool World Tour band on my you tube channel:

  • Ken from Louisville, KyActually, this is from the "John Fogerty" 1975 album, his first solo album under his on name.
  • Jim from Aurora, CoI read in an interview with John that he ranks this song amongst his very best - 'right up there with Fortunate Son.' I have to agree - I'm a huge JCF fan and this is one of my very favorites.
