"Walk on the Water" as written by and Fogerty Fogerty....
Late last night, I went for a walk,
Down by the river near my home.
Couldn't believe, with my own eyes,
And I swear I'll never leave my home again.

I saw a man walking on the water.
Coming right at me from the other side.

Calling out my name; "do not be afraid."
Feet begin to run, pounding in my brain;
I don't want to go; I don't want to go.

No, no, no, no, no...
I don't want to go.
Mmmmmmm...

    General CommentIt could be Jesus I guess, but it doesn't seem definitive to me. The only implication that it's Jesus is that someone walked on water. I always just saw it as creepy surreal imagery.

    Anyway, I love this song. It's probably my favorite CCR. The lyrics and the style of the vocals are fantastic together and the solo that makes up the second half of the song is amazing.

    General CommentThis song was one of the few written by Tom Fogarty that CCR recorded. I've always liked this song even though it feels about one verse short. The man walking on the water is obviously Jesus.

    The extended psychedelic guitar solo at the end has some great licks.
