Mr. Blue Grass - Big River lyrics

Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry, 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 every 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 block
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went down alone


Won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, your River Queen a-rollin’ 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

She loves you, Big River, more than me
