    Now I taught the weeping willow how to 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 accidentally in St. Paul (Minnesota)
    And it tore me up ev'ry time I heard her drawl, Southern Drawl
    Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport
    And I followed you, Big River, when you called

    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 then she went on down alone

    Well I pulled into Natchez next day down the river
    But there wasn't that much to make a rounder stay very long
    But when I left it was rainin' so nobody saw me cry
    Big River why you doin' 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 on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the gulf
    She loves you, Big River, more than me
