[Verse]

               E
           Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
                                                 F#        B7
      And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
  E                                                   A
  And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
                  E                   B7            E
             Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die


[Instrumental]

            E
         I met her accidentally in St. Paul (Minnesota).
                                              F#              B7
    And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl.
           E                                    A
   Then I heard my dream was back Downstream cavortin' in Davenport,
                    E          B7                 E
        And I followed you, Big River, when you called.

                E
     Then you took me to St. Louis later on (down the river).
                                                F#               B7
    A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone.
          E                               A
    I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block.
                     E                         B7         E
     She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.

[Instrumental]

                 E
    Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
                                      F#             B7
        Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans.
             E                             A
          Go on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the gulf.
                E                B7                E
               She loves you, Big River, more than me.

                E
           Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
                                                 F#        B7
      And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
  E                                                   A
  And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
                  E                   B7            E......E7
             Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die

The author wasn't very clear about this (maybe english isn't your first language) but a capo is needed across the first fret.
