Big River

Song Author Johnny Cash Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [A7]clear blue [D7]sky   
And the [G]tears that I cried for that woman are gonna [C]flood you Big River
Then [G]I'm gonna sit right [D7]here until I [G]die  


I met her accidentally in St.Paul, Minnesota
And it tore me up every time I heard her [A7]drawl southern [D7]drawl
Then I [G]heard my dream was back downstream [C]cavorting in Davenport
And I [G]followed you Big River [D7]when you [G]called


Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river
A freighter said she's been here but [A7]she's gone boy she's [D7]gone   
I [G]found her trail in Memphis but she [C]just walked up the block
She [G]raised a few eyebrows and then she [D7]went on down [G]alone


Now won't you batter down by Baton Rouge River Queen roll it on
Take that woman on down to New [A7]Orleans New [D7]Orleans
Go on [G]I've had enough dump my [C]blues down in the gulf
She [G]loves you Big River [D7]more than [G]me  


I met her accidentally in St.Paul, Minnesota
And it tore me up every time I heard her [A7]drawl southern [D7]drawl
Then I [G]heard my dream was back downstream [C]cavorting in Davenport
And I [G]followed you Big River [D7]when you [G]called


Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die

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

Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone
I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone

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

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