Proud Mary

This song is by George Jones and Johnny Paycheck and appears on the album My Very Special Guests (1979) by George Jones and on the album Double Trouble (1980).

Well, I left a good job in the city
A workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep
While worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Cropped a lot of cane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on this river boat queen

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river

Well, if you come down to the river
Well, I bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry if you have no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river

I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river
Rollin', rollin' on the river...
