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
Worryin' about the way things might have been

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

Said we're rollin' (rollin)
Rollin (rollin), rollin on the river (rollin on the river)

(Beat quickens)

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)

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis yall (Memphis yall)
And I pumped a lot of tane down in New Orleans (Ne Orleans)
But I never saw the good side of the city until 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)

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)
