Big River  Johnny Cash

Now a [E]taught the weepin willow how ta cry
And a showed the clouds how ta c[E7]over up,[E]the [F#7]clear blue [B7]sky
And the [E]tears a cried for that [E7]woman,are gonna[A7],flood you big river
Then [E]am gonna sit right [B7]here until a [E]die[G/E/G/E/G/E]
[E]I met her accidently in St Paul,Minnesota
An it tore me up every[E7]time a [E]heard her [F#7]drawl,Southern [B7]drawl
Then a [E]heard ma dream was [E7]back downstream [A7]cavortin in Davenport
And [E]a follwed you,big [B7]river,when you [E]called[G/E/G/E/G/E]
( Tab from: )
[E]Then you took me to St Louis,later on,down the river
A freighter said she's been [E7]here but [E]she's [F#7]gone,boy she's [B7]gone
A [E]found her trail in [E7]Memphis,but she[A7] just walked up the block
She [E]raised a few eyebrows,and [B7]then went on down [E]alone[G/E/G/E/G/E]

Take that [E7]woman on [E]down to New Or[F#7]leans,New Or[B7]leans
Go [E]on a've had eno[E7]ugh,dump ma [A7]blues down in the gulf
[E]She loves you,big [B7]river,more than [E]me[G/E/G/E/G/E]
