Big River

Johnny Cash

 E
 Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
 EB7
 And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
 EA
 And the tears that I cried for that woman, are gonna flood you Big River.
 EB7E
 Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die.

 E
 I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota.
 EB7
 And it tore me up ev'ry time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl.
 EA
 Then I heard my dream was back downstream, cavortin' in Davenport.
 EB7A
 And I followed you, Big River, when you called.

 E
 Then you took me to St. Louis later on (down the river).
 EB7
 A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone.
 EA
 I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block.
 EB7A
 She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.

 E
 Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
 EB7
 Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans.
 EA
 Go on, I've had enough; dump my blues down in the gulf.
 EB7E
 She loves you, Big River, more than me.


 E
 Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
 EB7
 And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
 EA
 And the tears that I cried for that woman, are gonna flood you Big River.
 EB7E
 Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die.
