#1.
Eb
Way down on Mississippi, big river, came a 
           Bb
mighty big man.
Bb
He built a town on that river and owned 
                   Eb
everything in that land.
Eb
He fell in love and married a girl, she was 
                    Bb
young and mean, and wild.
Bb  
He vowed he'd tame her but it couldn't been done,
                              Eb
she was truly the Devil's own child.


CHORUS:
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)


BRIDGE:
          Ab                Eb
Well, the love you have for greed and power will 
Bb              Eb
surely pull you down.
    Ab                     Eb
You lose your friends, you lose your soul, in the 
Bb                         Eb
empire city, the big man's town.


CHORUS:
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)


#2.
Eb
Look down in the water all around you, hear the 
                  Bb
steamboat whistle blow.
Bb             
Come on big man, get moving, you got a long way 
   Eb
to go.
Eb
Just like the big river, big man, you gotta move 
       Bb
on and on.
Bb
Take your money, keep your gold, you're gonna be 
         Eb
left all alone.


CHORUS:
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)


BRIDGE:
          Ab                Eb
Well, the love you have for greed and power will 
Bb              Eb
surely pull you down.
    Ab                     Eb
You lose your friends, you lose your soul, in the 
Bb                         Eb
empire city, the big man's town.


CHORUS:
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')
    Eb
Big man (keep on growing, growing.)


OUTRO:
    Bb
Big river (keep on flowin', flowin.')..(Fade.)
