Song Big River – Trick Pony

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 Naches next day down the river
But there wasn’t that much to make to 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
