Proud Mary
You know, every now and then
I think you might like to hear something from us
Nice and easy
But there's just one thing, you see
We never ever do nothing
Nice and easy
We always do it nice and rough
But we're gonna take the beginning of this song
And do it easy
But then we're gonna do the finish rough
The way we do Proud Mary
(Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river)
Listen to the story

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

Big wheel 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)

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
(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 wheel 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 said we're rollin' (rolling), rollin' (rolling)
Rollin' on the river (rolling on the river)

Oh I left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And 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' (alright)
Rollin' on the river (go ahead now)
Rollin' (alright), rollin' (yeah)
Rollin' on the river

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
Till I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

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

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find some people who live
You 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)
Rollin' on the river (alright now)
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river

(Rollin') Yeah (rollin') alright, alright now
(Rollin') Yeah (rollin') uhn-huhn
(Rollin' on the river) Gimme one more time
(Rollin') Yeah (rollin') whoo-wee
(Rollin' on the river)
(Rollin') Oh (rollin') yeah
(Rollin' on the river)
