George Jones Proud Mary Lyrics

Last updated: 12/13/2004 10:00:00 AM

(words and music by John C. Fogerty)

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
Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city Until I hitched a ride on a river boat queen
Big wheel keep on turnin'...
Rollin`,…..
[ guitar ]

If you come down to the river
Bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry
`cause you have no money
people on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin'...
Rollin' rollin' rollin' on the river
