  • Big River - Bill Monroe
  • (Album: Mr. Bluegrass; J. Cash)
  • 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 every 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 block.
  • She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.
  • Now, won't you 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.
  • 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.
