Soul City Survivors – Proud Mary lyrics

You know, every now and then
We 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 like to do things a little rough

So we're gonna take the beginning of this song and do it easy
Then we're gonna do the finish, we do it rough
'Cause thats the way we do 'Proud Mary'
And we're rolling on the river
Listen to the story now

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 that things might have been

Big wheels keep on turning
Oh, the proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling, yeah
Rolling on the river
Say, we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

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 that things might have been

Big wheel keep on turning
Oh, proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Say we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

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

Oh, big wheel keep on turning
Oh, the proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Say, we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates down in Memphis
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Until I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

Oh, big wheel keep on turning
Oh, the proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Say, we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
