    Lyrics

    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 that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you big river.
    Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die.

    I met her accidently in st. paul {minnesota}.
    And it tore me up every time heard her drawl, southern drawl.
    Then I heard my dream was back down stream cavortin in Davinport,
    And I followed you big river when she called.

    Then you took me to St. Louis later on down the river.
    A freighter said she's been here but she's boy she's gone.
    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.

    well I pulled in to natches next day down the river
    but the warden was there to make the round to stay very long
    when I left it was raining, so nobody
    saw me crawl
    Big river why you doing me this way

    Now, won't you batter down by baton rouge, river queen, roll it on.
    Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New orleans.
    Go i've had enough; dump my blues down in the gulf.
    She loves you, Big River, moren than me.

    I taught the weeping willow how to cry, cry,cry
    I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
    And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
    Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die.

    Thanks to mike o.
