Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen - Big River lyrics

Spoken:
Little old Johnny Cash favorite called Big River

Now I taught the weepin' 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 really tore me up ev'ry time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport
And then I followed you, Big River, when you called

Well 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 on down alone

I want you to 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

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