Big River 
Johnny Cash

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


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


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

Repeat # 1
