Big River
Johnny Cash

G chordG
Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
A7 chordA7 D7 chordD7
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
G chordG C chordC
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die

I met her accidentally in St Paul Minnesota
A7 chordA7 D7 chordD7
And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl southern drawl
G chordG C chordC
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavorting in Davenport
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
And I followed you Big River when you called

Then you took me to St Louis later on down the river
A7 chordA7 D7 chordD7
A chordA freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone
G chordG C chordC
I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
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 chordA7 D7 chordD7
Take that woman on down to New Orleans New Orleans
G chordG C chordC
Go on I've had enough dump my blues down in the gulf
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
She loves you Big River more than me

Repeat # 1
