  C
I taught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry.
                                          G7
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
        C                                           F
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you, big river.
    C                   G7           C
And I'm gonna sit right here until I die.


  C 
I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota.
                                         G7
And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl, southern drawl.
      C                                     F
And I heard my dream, Went back downstream, cavortin' in Davenport,
      C                 G7              C
And I followed you, big river, when she called.



Break:

C    F 
C G7 C


    C
Oh, she took me to St. Louie later on, down the river.
                                            G7
Freighter said, "She's been here, but she's gone, boy, she's gone."
      C                                   F
And I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the club.
             C            G7           C
Raised a few eyebrows and went on down alone.



        C
Well, I pulled into Natches next day down river,
                                                 G7
But there wasn't much there to make the rounders stay very long.
       C                      F
When I left it was rainin' so nobody saw me cry.
    C              G7            C
Big river, why she doin' me this way?



Break:

C    F 
C G7 C



               C
Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
                                 G7
Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans.
       C                        F
Go on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the gulf.
    C              G7               C
She loves you, big river, more than me.



  C
I taught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry.
                                          G7

        C                                           F
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you, big river.
    C                   G7           C
And I'm gonna sit right here until I die.
