    Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry cry cry,
    Taught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
    Tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you big river,
    And I'm a gonna sit right here until I die.

    I met her accidentally in st. Paul, Minnesota,
    She tore me up everything I heard her drawl, that southern drawl.
    Well I heard my dream went back downstream, cavortin' in davenport,
    And I follow you big river when you called.

    Well I followed her down to st. Louie, later on down the river,
    Trader said she's been here, but she's gone, boy, she's gone.
    Well I followed her down to Memphis, but she just walked off the bus,
    She raised a few eyebrows and she went on down alone.

    Well I've gotten on down to baton rouge, river queen roll on,
    Take that woman down to new Orleans, new Orleans.
    I give up, I've had enough, followed my blues on down to the gulf,
    She loves you big river more than me.
