The lyrics don't make much sense. It's like they're on LSD or something.

the lyrics are to cheer up Fogerty's son. they're based on a kid's mind and some sort of comic book

What kind of kid would think about riding on flying spoons? I know in Holland the authorities are a little loose on the drug laws, but is it that bad now, dutchccr?

This song is about using Heroin, plain and simple. That is the most direct reference, but another is "bother me tomorrow, today I'll find no sorrow"

I hope I don't seemed out of touch but I never thought CCR used drugs? I mean other bands from that era were adiment about it in their music like the Beatles in the mid 60s when it started showing up in their music. Since I just showed up in the world in 1969, maybe some one could clear this up?

Um, yeah... I live in a town with 100,000 people and there are like 6 shops where you can legally buy dope...
By the way, you guys have convinced me that 'Back Door is a drug song...

I totally agree, and one thing that made me CCR fan was that they never needed drugs to write or sing theyr songs; they are clear as the water
