Now, I taught the weepin willow how to cry, and I showed the clouds how
G C F
to cover up a clear blue sky, but the tears that I cried for that woman
are gonna flood you, big river, and I'm gonna sit right here until I
die. I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota, and it tore me up
G C F
every time I heard her drawl, southern drawl. Then I heard my dream
went 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
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 bluff, she raised a few
eyebrows and then she went on down alone. Now won't you bide it down by
Baton Rouge, river queen rollin on. Take that woman on down to New
Orleans, New Orleans. Go on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the
gulf. She loves you big river more than me. Now, I taught the weepin
willow how to cry, cry, cry, and I showed the clouds how to cover up a
clear blue sky, and the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna
flood you big river, and I'm gonna sit right here until I die.
