I left a good job in the city a working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep
And worryin' bout the way things might have been
Big wheels keep on turning Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis I 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
Big wheels keep on turning Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river
[ 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
Big wheels keep on turning Proud Mary keeps on burning
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river
