"Proud Mary" as written by and John C. Fogerty....
Left a good job in the city a workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost a minute of sleep
While worryin' bout the way things might have been
The big wheels keep on turnin' Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis copped a lot of cane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen
The big wheels keep on turnin'...
[ guitar - steel ]
If you come down to the river I bet you gonna find the people who live
You don't have to worry if you have no money people on the river are happy to give
The big wheels keep on turnin'...
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river
