Bet you’re wondering how I knew
About your plans to make me blue
With some other guy that you knew before?
Between the two of us guys, you know I love you more
It took me by surprise, I must say, when I found out yesterday

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

You know that a man ain’t supposed to cry
But these tears I can’t hold inside
Losing you would end my life, you see
Because you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself that you found someone else
Instead

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

People say you “Hear from what you see
Not not not from what you hear.”
I can’t help being confused
If it’s true, won’t you tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy that you knew before?

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

“I Heard It Through The Grapevine” is an extended cover of a song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for Motown Records in 1966 and recorded by various artists under that label such as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Gladys Knight & the Pips, and most famously Marvin Gaye.

This version is particularly known for its two lengthy instrumental jam sections, both of which extend the song up to 11 minutes. It’s the 10th track of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1970 album Cosmo’s Factory.
