"Proud Mary" as written by and Willie Nelson....
Left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keeps on Turin'
Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of tain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen

Big wheel keeps on turning
Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river
Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river

If you come down to the river
Bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry 'cause you have [if you got] no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keeps on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river (5x)
