Big River written and recorded by Johnny Cash
G Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry A7 D7 And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky G C And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River G D7 G Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
I met her accidentally in St.Paul, Minnesota A7 D7 And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl southern drawl G C Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavorting in Davenport G D7 G And I followed you Big River when you called
Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river A7 D7 A freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone G C I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block G D7 G 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 A7 D7 Take that woman on down to New Orleans New Orleans G C Go on I've had enough dump my blues down in the gulf G D7 G She loves you Big River more than me
