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
(I left a good job in the city)
You see we never ever do nothing
(Working for the man every night and day)
Nice easy

We always do it nice and rough
(And I never lost one minute of sleeping)
(And I was worrying 'bout the way things might have been)
So we're gonna take the beginning of this song
And do it easy
(Big wheel keep on turning)
Then we're gonna do the finish rough
(Proud Mary keep on burning)
This is the way we do Proud Mary

And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Listen to the story

Left a good job in the city
(Down in the city)
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
I was worrying 'bout the way the things might have been

(You know that)
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling
(Rolling)
Rolling yeah
(Rolling)
Rolling on the river
(Rolling on the river)

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
(You know I have)
Pumped a lot of tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw all the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

(You know the)
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling
(Rolling)
Rolling yeah
(Rolling)
Rolling on the river
(Rolling on the river)

Say we're rolling
(Rolling)
Rolling yeah
(Rolling)
Rolling on the river
(Rolling on the river)

Left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying 'bout the way the things might have been

Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
Rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Say we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river, river
Alright

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
And I pumped a lot of tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turning
(Turning)
Proud Mary keep on burning
(Burning)
And we're rolling, rolling
We rolling on the river
I tell we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river, river
Alright

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 got no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turning
(Turning)
Proud Mary keep on burning
(Burning)
And we're rolling, I'd be rolling
I'd be rolling on the river
Tell me one more time
(Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river)
Alright, alright

Rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
We're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
I tell you we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
I tell you we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river
Alright
