Proud Mary

This song is by Jana Burčeska.

I Left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
But I never lost one minute of sleeping
I wasn't worryin' 'bout the way that things might have been

The big wheels keep on turnin'
Ooh, the Proud Mary keep on burnin'
And we're rollin' (rolling), rollin', yeah (rolling)
Rollin' on the river (rolling on the river)

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis, y'all
And I 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 riverboat queen

(You know that) Big wheels keep on turnin'
And the Proud Mary keep on burnin'
And we're rollin' (rolling), rollin' (rolling)
We're rollin' on the river (rolling on the river)
Rollin' (rolling), rollin' (rolling)
We're rollin' on the river (rolling on the river)

I left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
But I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin' (turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (burnin')
Rollin' (yeah), rollin' (all right)
Rollin' on the river (go ahead now)
Rollin' (all right), rollin' (yeah)
Rollin' on the river

Come on!

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis, y'all
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 riverboat queen

Big wheels keep on turnin' (turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (burnin')
Rollin' (all right), rollin' (yeah)
Rollin' on the river (go ahead now)
Rollin', rollin'
Yeah, rollin' on the river

All right!

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find some people who live
Now, yYou don't have to worry if you got no money
The people on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin' (turnin')
Proud Mary keep on burnin' (burnin')
Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' (yeah)
We're rollin' on the river (all right now)
Rollin', rollin'
We're rollin' on the river
