Conway Twitty — Proud Mary lyrics

Left a good job in the city
A workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost a minute of sleep
While worryin' 'bout the way
Things might have been

The big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
Rollin', rollin',
Rollin' on the river.

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Copped a lot of cane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-proud-mary-lyrics.html ]
The big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
Rollin', rollin',
Rollin' on the river.

--- Instrumental ---

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find the people who live
You don't have to worry if you have no money
People on the river are happy to give

The big wheels keep on turnin'
Proud Mary keeps on burnin'
Rollin', rollin',
Rollin' on the river.

Rollin' rollin'
Rollin' on the river
Rollin' rollin'
Rollin' on the river...
