Wind at my back,
Face in the sun.
All my big ideas done.

Big river
Rollin'.

Listen to a sea shell
You can hear the sea.
Listen to a beer glass
That river belongs to me.

Big river
Rollin'.

There's a river runs here.
When it rains we flood.
Co-op City first 3 floors
Of Charles River mud.

Big river
Rollin'.
Oh, yeah!
Big river
Rollin'.
Oh, yeah!

Land's edge,
Where the East begins,
The debris meets the sea
When the tide comes in.

Oh, look out!

Look both ways now.

(Solo 1)

Big river
Rollin'.
Oh, yeah!
Big river
Rollin'.
Oh, yeah!

Big river.
Big river.
Oh, yeah!

(Solo 2)
