[Verse]
ENow I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
F# B7And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
E AAnd the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
E B7 EThen I'm gonna sit right here until I die
[Verse]
EI met her accidentally in St. Paul (Minnesota).
F# B7And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl.
E AThen I heard my dream was back Downstream cavortin' in Davenport,
E B7 EAnd I followed you, Big River, when you called.
EThen you took me to St. Louis later on (down the river).
F# B7A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone.
E AI found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block.
E B7 EShe raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.
[Verse]
ENow, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
F# B7Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans.
E AGo on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the gulf.
E B7 EShe loves you, Big River, more than me.
ENow I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
F# B7And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
E AAnd the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
E B7 E E7Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
