porterville lyrics – john fogerty

but you won’t catch me goin’ back down there alone
things they said when i was young
are quite enough to get me hung
i don’t care! i don’t care!

they came and took my dad away to serve some time
but it was me that paid the debt he left behind
folks said i was full of sin, because i was the next of
kin.
i don’t care! i don’t care!

folks were out one night to put me up a fence

but you can guess that i’ve been runnin’ ever since
ain’t no one that’s ’bout to help, but
i’ll keep on, i tell myself
i don’t care! i don’t care!

ain’t no one that’s ’bout to help, but
i’ll keep on, i tell myself
i don’t care! i don’t care!
i don’t care! i don’t care!
i don’t care! i don’t care!
