CREEDANCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL (1969) - Proud Mary

‚Äč

And we're rolling

rolling, rolling on the river

(listen to the story)

 

Left a good job down in the city

Workin' for the Man every night and day

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'

And we're rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

 

(straight in after chorus RIVER)

 

Left a good job down in the city

Workin' for the Man every night and day

And I never lost one minute of sleepin'

worryin' 'bout the way that things might have been

 

big wheel keep on turnin'

Proud Mary keep on burnin'

rollin', rollin' on the river (wait for choir "on the river")

rollin rollin', rollin' on the river

---------------------------- WAIT FOR LOUD BIT AND STOP 8

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis

pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans

I never saw the good side of the city

til I hitched a ride on the river boat queen

 

big wheel keep on turnin'

Proud Mary keep on burnin'

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

 

chorus then 4

 

left a good job in the city

Workin' for the Man every night and day

And I never lost a 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 the river

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

 

Alright  4 

 

cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis

pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans

But I never saw the good side of a city

'Til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

 

Big wheel keep on turnin'

Proud Mary keep on burnin'

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

 

Alright

Straight in

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

rollin', rollin', rollin'on the river

She'll sit there all alone knowing there's no-one that can fill his shoes

And it's not just her tears falling

The whole music world's got the blues

And the saddest of all is

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

 

instrumental Break

He won't hold her in his hands

There's lonely silence in her strings

2 line Break for sad wailing guitar

And the saddest of all is

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more
