Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep-in
Worryin' bout the way things might have been
Big wheels Keep on turnin
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin, rollin on the river
Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis,
pumped a lot of tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city until I hitched
a ride on the river boat Queen
Repeat verse 1 and 2 faster and add verse 3
If you come down to the river
betcha you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry
Cause you have no money
people on the river are happy to give
big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on a river
Rollin', rollin' on a river
