Johnny Cash

"Big River"

[Intro]
Hi, we're Trick Pony

[Chorus]
Well I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry, cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I cried for that man, oh, they're gonna flood you Big River
Well, I'm gonna sit right here until I die

[Verse 1]
Now I met him accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota
And it tore me up ev'ry time I heard his drawl, that Southern Drawl
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport
And I followed you, Big River, when you called, aw yeah

[Verse 2]
Then you took me to St. Louis later on, down the river
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone
I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the bluff
She raised a few eyebrows and went on down alone

[Verse 3]
Well I pulled into Naches next day down the river
But there wasn't that much to make around to stay very long
But when I left, it was rainin' so nobody saw me cry
Big River why you doin' me this way?

[Verse 4]
Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge? River Queen, rollin' on
Take that man on down to New Orleans, said New Orleans
Go on, I've had enough, put my blues down in the gulf
Yeah, he loves you, Big River, more than me

[Chorus]
Well I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry, cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I cried for that woman, they're gonna flood you Big River
Well, I'm gonna sit right here until I die, yeah
Now I'm gonna sit right here until I die, yeah, that's right
