I [E]taught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry.
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [B7]clear blue sky.
And the [E]tears that I cried for that woman are gonna [A]flood you, big river.
And [E]I'm gonna sit right [B7]here until I [E]die.
I [E]met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota.
And it tore me up every time I heard her [B7]drawl, southern drawl.
And I [E]heard my dream, Went back downstream, [A]cavortin' in Davenport,
And I [E]followed you, big [B7]river, when she [E]called.
Break:
[E] [A]  
[E] [B7] [E]  
Oh, [E]she took me to St. Louie later on, down the river.
Freighter said, "She's been here, but she's [B7]gone, boy, she's gone."
And I [E]found her trail in Memphis, but she [A]just walked up the club.
Raised a few [E]eyebrows and [B7]went on down [E]alone.
Well, I [E]pulled into Natches next day down river,
But there wasn't much there to make the rounders [B7]stay very long.
When I [E]left it was rainin' so [A]nobody saw me cry.
Big [E]river, why she [B7]doin' me this [E]way?
Break:
[E] [A]  
[E] [B7] [E]  
Now, won't you [E]batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
Take that woman on down to New Or[B7]leans, New Orleans.
Go on, [E]I've had enough, dump my [A]blues down in the gulf.
She [E]loves you, big [B7]river, more than [E]me.
I [E]taught the weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cry.
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [B7]clear blue sky.
And the [E]tears that I cried for that woman are gonna [A]flood you, big river.
And [E]I'm gonna sit right [B7]here until I [E]die.
