Credence Clearwater Revival
CCR was a cool rock band of the late 60's and early 70's. A few of their top hits are memorable numbers like Lookin' Out My Backdoor. John Fogerty, lead singer guitarist and songwriter for the band says that the song is for his 3 year old son Josh, and that the parade reference was to the Dr. Seuss book "And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street."
Here is the song, without further ado.
