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 things might have been Big wheel keeps on Turin' Proud Mary keeps on burning Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis Pumped a lot of tain down in New Orleans But I never saw the good side of the city 'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen Big wheel keeps on turning Proud Mary keeps on burning Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river (2x) If you come down to the river Bet you gonna find some people who live You don't have to worry 'cause you have [if you got] no money People on the river are happy to give Big wheel keeps on Turin' Proud Mary keeps on burning Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river (2x) Rollin', rolling, rolling on the river (3x) ***** As sung by Ike & Tina Turner - 1971 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 So we're gonna take the beginning of this song And do it easy Then we're gonna do the finish rough This is the way we do "Proud Mary" And we're rolling, rolling, rolling on the river Listen to the story I 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 things might have been Big wheel keep on turning Proud mary keep on burning And we're rolling, rolling Rolling 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 Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen Big wheel keep on turning Proud mary keep on burning And 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 People on the river are happy to give *****
