Big River

Steal Your Face

General Rules On Chord Charts


Well I taught that weeping willow how to cry cry cry,


Taught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.


Tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you big river,

A E7 A

And I'm a gonna sit right here until I die.


I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota,


She tore me up everything I heard her drawl,


That southern drawl.


Well I heard my dream went back downstream,


Cavortin' in Davenport,

A E7 A

And I followed you big river when you called.

Well I followed her down to St. Louie,

Later on down the river,

Trader said she's been here,

But she's gone, boy, she's gone.

Well I followed her down to Memphis,

But she just walked off the bus,

She raised a few eyebrows and she went on down alone.

Well I've gotten on down to Baton Rouge,

River Queen roll on,

Take that woman down to New Orleans, New Orleans.

I give up, I've had enough,

Followed my blues on down to the gulf,

She loves you big river more than me.
