Default LODI - From the Biblical Town LODIBAR???

I was in church and heard about a town called LODIbar. Itwas a dismal place of no pasture, no hope - total desolation in the Bible. I used to think that Lodi might be from the ancient town of utter despair calld Lodibar...

Well, around the time when this was recorded live on tour in Europe the well known photographer "Jim Marshall " was following them on tour and I heard later on that CCR wasn't too happy with him, maybe that's what John was talking about over here ?

Mary Lou, you are a God. Thank you for putting these people out of their misery. Stuck in Lodi again is my wife's theme song after having 4 children at tha Mason Hospital in Lodi, California. We lived 20 miles away in Walnut Grove.

Default Sad

It's sad to read all these and see the answers. The question was "What does the word "Lodi" mean?" It basically means the same as it sounds. Low Die.
Well as you will see Lodi is a town in Italy where Napoleon was defeated by the Austrians. It was a slow and painful defeat. He could not advance nor retreat.
Therefor the term was associated with a situation or cycle that holds a person in peril.
On the river a lodi is an undercurrent after a waterfall that will take you under and hold you there or in a kayak it will just hold you in one place while the water rushes by.
On the ocean, in a sailboat it is when the wind dies and your left drifting.
In the old west many travelers found themselves in a situation that can still happen today. You can make enough to survive but not enough to leave. Explaining the reason many towns were named Lodi. That is how the town got started.
I was lucky enough to be exposed to alot of very old people as a child who used the term and took the time to explain it to me. Unfortunately our educational system has failed us again.
