Proud Mary Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well I left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' bout the way things might have been

A big wheel to keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said, "Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river"

George you know I cleaned a lot of things down in Memphis
Popped a lot of cane in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on this river boat queen

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said, "Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river"

Well if you come down to the river
Well I bet you gonna find some people joining who do you
You don't have to worry George if you have no money
People on the river are happy to give

I said, "The big wheel will keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
We're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river"

I said, "We're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river"
Rollin', rollin' on the river

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river on the river
I said, "We're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river"
