D
Left a good job in the city,
Workin for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin’
.                                                                            G  G#
Worryin’ ‘bout the way things might have been
A                                                             Bm                     G
Big wheel a-keep on turnin’ Proud Mary keep on burnin’
.                   D
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river!

 

D
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
.                                                                 G  G#
Till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.
A                                                            Bm                     G
Big wheels keep on turnin, Proud Mary keep on burnin
.                   D
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river!
.                                                                     G  D                                         G  D
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river, the river, rollin’ on the river, the river,

D
Left a good job in the city
Workin for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin’
.                                                                           G  G#
Worryin’ ‘bout the way things might have been.
A                                                             Bm                      G
Big wheel a-keep on turnin’ Proud Mary keep on burnin’
.                    D
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river!
.                                                    D
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river!
Give up dup dup dup, dup dup dup dup, dup dup dup dup
