Proud Mary

In the style of

Ike & Tina Turner

Lyrics

you know every now
and then i think
you might like to hear
something from us

nice and easy
but there's
just one thing you see
we never ever do
nothin' nice and easy

we always do it
nice and rough
and we're gonna
take the beginning
of this song
and do it easy

but then we're gonna
do the finish rough
the way we do
proud mary

rollin' rollin'
rollin' on a river
listen to the
story now

left a good job
in the city
workin' for the man
every night and day

and i never lost
one minute of sleepin'
i was worryin' 'bout
the way that things
might have been

big wheel
keep on turnin'
ooh the proud mary
keep on burnin'
and we're rollin'
rollin' yeah
rollin' on a river

cleaned a lotta
plates
in memphis
pumped a lot of 'tane
down in new orleans

but i never saw the
good side of the city
until i hitched a ride
on a riverboat queen

big wheel
keep on turnin'
ooh the proud mary
keep on burnin'
and we're
rollin' rollin' yeah

rollin' on a river
said we're
rollin' rollin'
rollin' on a river

oh i left a good job
in the city
workin' for the man
every 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'
rollin' rollin'
rollin' on a river

rollin' said
we're rollin'
rollin' on a river
river doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo

woh yeah alright
cleaned a lotta
plates
in memphis y'all
pumped a lot of 'tane
down in new orleans

but i never saw the
good side of a city
till i hitched the ride
on a riverboat queen

big wheel
keep on turnin'
proud mary
keep on burnin'
rollin' rollin'
rollin' on a river

said we're
rollin' rollin'
rollin' on a river
river doo doo doo

if you come
down to the river
now i'll bet
you're gonna find
some people who live

you don't
have to worry
if you got no money
people
on the river
are happy to give

big wheel
keep on turnin'
proud mary
keep on burnin'
rollin' said we're
rollin'
rollin' on a river
