[E]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry
[E]And I showed the clouds how to cover up a [B7]clear blue sky

Then [E]I'm gonna sit right [B7]here until I [E]die
Verse 2
 
 --------

[E]I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota
[E]And it tore me up every time I heard her [B7]drawl, southern drawl
Then I [E]heard my dream was back downstream, ca[A]vortin' in Davenport
And I [E]followed you, Big [B7]River, when you [E]called
Break: E (G) E E (G) E A (C) A E (G) E B7 E (G) E

[E]Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river
[E]A freighter said she's been here but she's [B7]gone, boy, she's gone
[E]I found her trail in Memphis, but she [A]just walked up the block
She raised a [E]few eyebrows and then she [B7]went on down [E]alone
Verse 4
 
 --------

[E]Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on
[E]Take that woman on down to New Or[B7]leans, New Orleans
Go [E]on, I've had enough, dump my [A]blues down in the gulf
[E]She loves you, Big [B7]River, more than [E]me
Verse 5
 
 --------

[E]Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry, cry
[E]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
Then [E]I'm gonna sit right [B7]here until I [E]die
