  • Well I taught the weeping willow how to cry
    And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
    And the tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
    Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
    Oh I met her accidentaly in St Paul Minnesota
    And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl southern drawl
    Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport
    And I followed you Big River when you called
    Then you took me to St Louis later on down the river
    A freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone
    I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block
    She raised a few eyebrows and went on down alone
    [ steel - guitar ]
    Now won't you batter down by Boton Rouge River Queen roll it on
    Take that woman on down to New Orleans New Orleans
    Go on I've had enough dump my blues down in the gulf
    Oh she loves you Big River more than me
    Yeah I taught the weeping willow how to cry cry cry
    And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
    And the tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
    Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
