Hi, there!!
Oh, just to give details on the "Italian" Lodi... it is not exactly near to Assisi,
it's actually only 25 km south-east of Milano, which means some 430 km from
Assisi... also Lodi isn't specifically "small", being close to 55.000 inhabitants...
I feel the 23 Mar, 2004 post mixed-up with the small town of Todi which fits
with description i.e. ancient and relatively close to Assisi (about 70 km)...
Apart from that the "Italian" Lodi certainly has nothing to do with the lovely
CCR song.
Bye

I had alway thought that he said "low dive".
in Aussie that's a place that is pretty run down, especially like a old club or pub that is nearly always empty. I don't know whether you guys have that expression in USA, but it sure fits into the songs theme really well.

But if John the song writer has not disputed the Lodi in California theory then it must be right. I like my idea better.

It is about Lodi, CA, hes explained it in interviews in the past, and during concerts he would sometimes explain it.
