Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry, cry
I've shown the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I've cried over that woman
Well, they're gonna flood you big river and I'm gonna sit right here until I die

Well, I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota
And it tore me up every time I heard her draw that southern draw
Then I heard my dream was back downstream reporting in Davenport
And I followed you big river when you called

Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river
Freighter said you'd been here but she's gone said boy she's gone
Well, I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block
She raised a few eyebrows then she moved on down along, yes, she did

Now I went back down to Baton Rouge my little queen rolling on
Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans
Go on I've had enough dumped my blues down in the gulf
She loves you big river more than me

Yeah, when I pulled into Nachez yesterday down the river
You know there's not much there to make you stay very long
When I left it was raining so nobody saw me crying
Big river why's she treating me this way

Well, I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry, cry
I've shown the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I've cried over that woman
Well they're gonna flood you big river and I'm gonna sit right here until I die
Yeah, I'm gonna sit right here until I die
