Rollin Rollin Rollin on a river
(This one's for you Artie)

Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep'n
Worryin' about the way things might have been

Big wheels Keep on turnin'
Oohh the Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
And we're rollin' (rollin)
Rollin yeah (rollin), rollin on the river (rollin on the river)
