I Etaught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry. And I showed the clouds how to cover up a B7clear blue sky. And the Etears that I cried for that woman are gonna Aflood you, big river. And EI'm gonna sit right B7here until I Edie. I Emet her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota. And it tore me up every time I heard her B7drawl, southern drawl. And I Eheard my dream, Went back downstream, Acavortin' in Davenport, And I Efollowed you, big B7river, when she Ecalled.

Oh, Eshe took me to St. Louie later on, down the river. Freighter said, "She's been here, but she's B7gone, boy, she's gone." And I Efound her trail in Memphis, but she Ajust walked up the club. Raised a few Eeyebrows and B7went on down Ealone. Well, I Epulled into Natches next day down river, But there wasn't much there to make the rounders B7stay very long. When I Eleft it was rainin' so Anobody saw me cry. Big Eriver, why she B7doin' me this Eway?

Now, won't you Ebatter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on. Take that woman on down to New OrB7leans, New Orleans. Go on, EI've had enough, dump my Ablues down in the gulf. She Eloves you, big B7river, more than Eme. I Etaught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry. And I showed the clouds how to cover up a B7clear blue sky. And the Etears that I cried for that woman are gonna Aflood you, big river. And EI'm gonna sit right B7here until I Edie.
