[F]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
[F]And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [G]clear blue [C7]sky
And the [F]tears that I cried for that [F7]woman,
are gonna [Bb]flood you Big River
Then [F]I’m gonna sit right [C7]here until I [F]die

[F]I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota
[F]And it tore me up every time I heard her [G]drawl, southern [C7]drawl
Then I [F]heard my dream was back [F7]downstream,
[Bb]cavorting in Davenport
And I [F]followed you, Big [C7]River, when you [F]called

[F] [F] [F] [F] [Bb] [Bb] [F] [F] [C7] [F] [F]

[F]Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river
[F]A freighter said she’s been here but she’s [G]gone, boy, she’s [C7]gone
[F]I found her trail in Memphis, but she [Bb]just walked up the block
She raised a [F]few eyebrows and then she [C7]went on down a[F]lone

[F]Now, won’t you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on
[F]Take that woman on down to New Or[G]leans, New Or[C7]leans
[F]Go on, I’ve had enough, dump my [Bb]blues down in the gulf
[F]She loves you, Big [C7]River, more than [F]me

[F]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
[F]And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [G]clear blue [C7]sky
And the [F]tears that I cried for that [F7]woman, are gonna [Bb]flood you Big River
Then [F]I’m gonna sit right [C7]here until I [F]die
