I didn't tab this song myself, so no credit should be given to me, but I saw
there were only 2 (wrong) version on this site, so I decided to put this one on.
I've got this tab from creedence-online.com, so it should be correct.

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.

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, 
Till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.
A                            
Big wheel a-keep on turnin,  
     Bm
Proud  Mary keep on burnin',

Riff 3 right after burnin'

If you come down to the river,

People on the river are happy to give.
