G
Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry

                                          A7         D7
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky

        G                                           C
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River

     G                   D7           G
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die

 
 
I met her accidentally in St.Paul, Minnesota

                                         A7             D7
And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl southern drawl

       G                                  C
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavorting in Davenport

      G                      D7       G
And I followed you Big River when you called

 
 
Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river

                                     A7                   D7
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone

  G                                  C
I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block

    G                                  D7           G
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone

 
 
Now won't you batter down by Baton Rouge River Queen roll it on

                               A7           D7
Take that woman on down to New Orleans  New Orleans

      G                       C
Go on I've had enough dump my blues down in the gulf

    G                   D7        G
She loves you Big River more than me
