The Voices of Bilthoven

Proud Mary – Ike en Tina Turner


LEFT A GOOD JOB IN THE CITY
WORKING FOR THE MAN EV’RY NIGHT AND-DAY
AND I NEVER LOST ONE MINUTE OF SLEEPIN’
WORRYING ‘BOUT THE WAY THINGS MIGHT HAVE-BEEN

BIG WHEEL KEEP ON TURNING
PROUD MARY KEEP ON BURNING
AND WE’RE ROLLING (OEHOEHOE), ROLLING (HOEHOEHOE),
ROLLING ON THE RIVER (ROLLING ON THE RIVER)
I SAID ROLLING (HOEHOEHOE), ROLLING (HOEHOEHOE)
ROLLING ON THE RIVER

(WELL I) LEFT A GOOD JOB IN THE CITY
WORKING FOR A MAN EV’RY NIGHT AND DAY
AND I NEVER LOST A MINUTE OF SLEEP ‘CAUSE I’VE BEEN
WORRYING ‘BOUT THE WAY THINGS MIGHT HAVE BEEN

BIG WHEELS KEEP ON TURNING (TURNING)
PROUD MARY KEEP ON BURNING (BURNING)
(AND WE’RE) ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING ON THE RIVER
I SAID ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING ON THE RIVER

CLEANED A LOT OF PLATES IN MEMPHIS
PUMPED A LOT OF ‘TANE DOWN IN NEW ORLEANS
BUT I NEVER SAW THE GOOD SIDE OF THE CITY
‘TILL I HITCHED A RIDE ON THE RIVERBOAT QUEEN

BIG WHEELS KEEP ON TURNING (TURNING)
PROUD MARY KEEP ON BURNING (BURNING)
ROLLING (ROLLING), ROLLING (ROLLING),
ROLLING ON THE RIVER
WE SAID ROLLING (ROLLING), ROLLING (ROLLING),
ROLLING ON THE RIVER

WE SAID ROLLING, ROLLING OH, NUTBUSH CITY LIMITS
AND WE’RE ROLLING (ROLLING), ROLLING (ROLLING)
ROLLING ON THE RIVER
WE SAID ROLLING (ROLLING), ROLLING (ROLLING)
ROLLING ON THE RIVER
