"Travelin' Band" as written by and John C. Fogerty....
Seven Thirty Seven comin' out of the sky.
Oh! Won't you take me down to Memphis on a midnight ride,
I want to move.

[Chorus]
Playin' in a Travelin' Band. Yeah!
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, try'in' to get a hand,
Playin' in a Travelin' Band.

Take me to the hotel, Baggage gone, oh, well.
Come on, come on, won't you get me to my room,
I want to move.

[Chorus]

Listen to the radio, Talkin' 'bout the last show.
Someone got excited, Had to call the State Militia,
want to move.

[Chorus]

Oh! WOW!
Here we come again on a Saturday night
Oh with your fussin' and a fightin'
Won't you get me to the rhyme,
I want to move.

[Chorus]

Oh! Wow!
Oh! I'm playin' in a Travelin' Band;
Playin' in a Travelin' Band.
Won't you get me, take me hand
Well, I'm playin' in a Travelin' Band,
Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land.
Tryin' to get a hand,
Playin' in a Travelin' Band, OH! WOW!

    My Opinion"Here we come again on a Saturday night
    With your fussin' and your fightin' won't you get me to the rhyme"

    This couplet doesn't sound right to me, either for the context (what woud it mean for Fogerty to want someone to "get him to the rhyme," and how would fussin' and fightin' interfere with getting to a rhyme?) or for the rhyme scheme itse;f (ironically).

    Wouldn't "get me to the ride" fit better? He's eager to get to a cab or limo or bus? Plus, although "night"/"ride" is a slant rhyme, it's a lot closer than "night"/"rhyme."

    General CommentAbout the Jailhouse Rock reference, I believe that it also might have a 'Long Tall Sally' sound, as well (LTS --- a song The Beatles copied/covered from someone else in the early '60's).
