Rollin' rollin' rollin' on a river
(This ones for you Artie)

Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep, 'n I was
Worryin' about the way things might have been

Big wheels Keep on turnin'
Ooh the Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
And we're rollin' (rollin')
Rollin' yeah (rollin'), rollin' on the river (we're rollin' on the river)
Said we're rollin' (rollin')
Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on the river (rollin' on the river)

So I left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep 'n
Worryin' about the way things might have been

Big wheels keep on turnin (turning)
Proud Mary keeps on burnin' (burning)
And we're rollin' (rollin')
Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on the river (rollin' on the river)
Rollin' (rollin') rollin' (yeah), rollin' on the river (rollin' on the river)

Da do do do
Da do do do
Da do do do ba da ba yeah ba da ba ba ba yeah

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis y'all (Memphis y'all)
And I pumped a lot of tane down in New Orleans (New Orleans)
But I never saw the good side of the city 'til I hitched
A ride on the river boat Queen

Big wheels keep on turnin (turning)
Proud Mary keeps on burnin' (burning)
And we're rollin' (rollin')
Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on the river (rollin' on the river)
Rollin' (yeah) rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on the river (rollin' on the river)

Da do do do
Da do do do
Da do do do ba da ba yeah ba da ba ba ba yeah

If you come down to the river (do do do)
I betcha you're gonna find some people who live (do do do)
You don't have to worry
If you have no money
The people on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keeps on turnin' (turning)
Proud Mary keeps on burnin' (burning)
Rollin', rollin' (rollin') rollin' on a river(rollin' on a river)
Rollin', rollin' (yeah), rollin' on a river (rollin' on a river)

Da do do do
Da do do do
Da do do do ba da ba yeah ba da ba ba ba yeah

Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' (rollin') rollin' on a river (rollin' on a river)
Rollin' (rollin'), rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on a river (rollin')
Da do do do ba da ba yeah ba da ba ba ba yeah
