Bad Moon Rising is about a depressed man standing on train tracks at night watching the approaching train come to take his life. He sees the train's headlight and it reminds him of the moon.

According to SongFacts: "The lyrics were inspired by a movie called The Devil And Daniel Webster, in which a hurricane wipes out most of a town. This is where John Fogerty got the idea for the line "I feel the hurricane blowin', I hope you're quite prepared to die.""
I Hope that helps!

Default Bad Moon

The term Bad Moon Rising has been around for decades and is used to suggest the approach of anything dangerous or evil. It can be likened to the association between a full moon and werewolves.
