050. Proud Mary

Y' 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

Left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
An' I never lost one minute of sleeping
worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
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 a riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river

Oh I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', say rollin'
Rollin' on the river

Doo bot doot doot doot doot doot doot doot doot doot doot doot.

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'
Proud mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', say rolling
Rollin' on the river

Rollin', rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', say rolling
Rollin' on the river

Rollin', rolling
Rollin' on the river
Rollin', say rolling
Rollin' on the river

Yeah, we're rollin' rollin' rollin'
