Lodi (Creedence) - for guitar, ukulele and banjo

Posted on September 15, 2016 at 2:05 AM

This song has an easy 5-chord structure with spaced changes, a great, steady rhythm and an easy-to-sing tune. I’ve written it out in Key of G as it seems easier to sing (and play), but the recorded version I refer to starts in Bb and changes to C in verse 4. I’ve just left it in G and haven’t put in the instrumental break etc.

I also did a Key of E version a while ago for guitar, so I’m adding that in case anyone wants to try it.

Here are the links to the song sheets:


for guitar - L 5 Lodi - Key G_G,C,D,D7,Em

for banjo - B.L.5 Lodi - Key G_G,C,D,D7,Em


There is a YouTube clip of the song here (Key Bb>C):
