Susie Q was a cover song written by Hawkins-Lewis-Broadwater.

I guess you'd have to ask them.

Susie Q was a cover song written by Hawkins-Lewis-Broadwater. It's a 1957 song by Dale Hawkins, so it's not about Suzi Quatro. It hit the charts for CCR in 1968.

I guess you'd have to ask Dale Hawkins.

ok guys, here's the real scoop on suzi q, from a guy who got it from the real suzi q that dale hawkins is talkin' about. Stan Lewis is the legendary "Stan the Record Man" in Shreveport, Louisiana. Back in the early days, a young teen guitarist by the of James Burton, along with Dale Hawkins and others, were always at Stan Lewis' home jammin' and writin'. Stan just happened to have a beautiful, (and she still is) daughter by the name of Suzi...
Suzi was just a toddler then, but she had already won the hearts of the guys... so... they jammed a song and called it suzi q in honor of her! James Burton is the guy who is responsible for the famous guitar lick...
I know this to be fact, because James still lives here in Shreveport and told me so, and Suzi ust' to date a friend of mine, and she told me so too! Glad i could help!

from the bayou state of louisiana...

actually, the song wasn't written about Stan's daughter, nor was the riff written by James Burton. It was all Dale. How do I know? Because Dale told me. But I guess history is always up for dispute!

I read that back when CCR was Tom Fogerty and the Blue Velvets, they recorded Susie Q but it didn't chart. I believe Tom Fogerty sand lead?

I haven't seen the credits for any of the versions I've heard but I know that guitar player James Burton said he came up with the main guitar link in that song and he was playing with Dale Hawkins at the time. I thought that I heard somewhere that it had to do with a car but I don't think a car walks or talks so that's probably not right.
