Johnny Cash

"Big River (Count De Money remix)"

Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears that I shed for my baby are gonna flood you Big River
And I don't care if I sit here and die

Well I met her accidentally in St. Paul (Minnesota)
And it tore me up ??? heard her drawl, Southern drawl
But then I heard that my dream was Downstream cavortin' in Davenport
And I followed you, Big River, cause you called

Well 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
Well I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone

Now I rolled into Natchez the next day, down the river
But there wasn't much there to make a rounder stay very long
She got moving in her blood (???) and I got it all from you
Big River, why you make that gal that way

Well now, batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, bat it down
You got my Baby take her own down to New Orleans, New Orleans
Let her go I've had enough dump the blues down in the Gulf
It's you she loves Big River it ain't me

Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry
And I showed the cloud how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears that I shed for my baby are gonna flood you Big River
And I don't care if I sit here till die.nd wanting
Your houses are built upon the sand"
