Testo

I left a good job in the city
workin' for the man ev'ry night and day
and I never lost one minute of sleepin'
worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
and rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

alright

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
I pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
but I never saw the good side of the city
'til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
and rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
and rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

alright, yeah
ooh, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find some people who live
and you don't have to worry if you have no money
people on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
and rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
rollin' yeah, rollin', rollin' on the river

yeah, aah

(Rollin') yeah, (rollin') yeah, (rollin' on the river)
(rollin') alright, (rollin') yeah, (rollin' on the river)
(rollin') ah, (rollin') yeah, (rollin' on the river)
(rollin') yeah, (rollin') ah, (rollin' on the river)

yeah, ah ah
ah ah
