Rollin' on the River

****
Left a good job in the city 
Workin' for the man ev'ry night and day 
And I never lost one minute of sleepin' 
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been 

Big wheel keep on turnin' 
Proud Mary keep on burnin' 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis 
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans 
But I never saw the good side of the city 
'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen 

Big wheel keep on turnin' 
Proud Mary keep on burnin' 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 

If you come down to the river 
Bet you gonna find some people who live 
You don't have to worry 'cause you have [if you got] no money 
People on the river are happy to give 

Big wheel keep on turnin' 
Proud Mary keep on burnin' 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river 
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

I've always liked that song and it's perfect for the post. What fun to be out there on the water. Nice shot, too. Great colors!
