George Jones - Proud Mary Lyrics




Well, I left a good job in the city
A workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleep
While worryin' 'bout the way things might have been.

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river.

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Cropped a lot of cane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on this river boat queen.

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
Rollin', rollin' on the river.

Well, if you come down to the river
Well, I bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry if you have no money
People on the river are happy to give.

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
I said rollin'
rollin', rollin' on the river.

I said rollin',
Rollin', rollin' on the river.
Rollin', rollin' on the river...

    Here's a testimony to Johnny's versatility. Who knew he could bring in a Pop song like this and make it so very good....
