C, E, G, Bb = C7 (aka "C dominant 7th"), which is not to be confused with Cmaj7 (C, E, G, B) or Cm7 (C, Eb, G, Bb).
In any major-key chord progression, there's a naturally occurring 7th chord on the V chord of the progression, though jazzers and blues players will substitute Dom7 chords for practically any other chord (but especially I and IV).

Okay, that clears things up. You should have seen, I had a piece of paper here at my desk with the notes written out, counting semitones between notes to try to figure it out.
