BIG RIVER
Words and Music by Michael J. Hamilton © 2013

VERSE 1
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’, ROLLIN’
THROUGH THE NIGHT AND THROUGH THE DAY
TURNING MY MIND SO FAR AWAY FROM THE TUPELO RIVERSIDE CAFÉ
TAKE A LITTLE LONGER, AND HELP ME DO WHAT IT IS THAT I NEED
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
AND HELP ME MEND THESE BROKEN HEARTED DREAMS

PRE-CHORUS
CAUSE EVERY TIME I TAKE A LOOK AROUND
ANOTHER FRIEND HAS LEFT THIS TOWN
TELL ME WHY I GOTTA STAY
IF I COULD ONLY TRY TO CHANGE MY FATE
AND MAYBE FIND SOME SORT OF WAY
THAT I COULD LEAVE THIS PLACE

CHORUS
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’ ON
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
ROLLIN’ ON

VERSE 2
BIG RIVER KEEP TAKING, TAKING EVERYTHING THIS BOY CAN GIVE
I GOT A CASE OF THEM RAMBLIN’ BLUES
AS I SIT ON THIS RIVER BANK THINKING ‘BOUT WHAT IF?
THERE WILL COME A TIME I’M SURE
I’M GONNA WATCH MY BRIGHT STAR RISE
THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW THIS ONE HORSE TOWN
IS OUT OF MIND AND OUT OF SIGHT

PRE-CHORUS2
SHOW ME MEMPHIS, NATCHEZ, NEW ORLEANS
DELTA WOMEN FILL MY DREAMS, I WANNA POKE MY NOSE AROUND HO! HO!
SO DON’T YOU EVEN TRY TO CHANGE MY MIND
AND BRING ME DOWN MOST ANY TIME
UNTIL I GOT WHAT I WANT

(CHORUS)


(PRE, CHORUS)

VERSE 3
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
ROLLIN’ EVERY NIGHT AND EVERY DAY
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
AND TAKE THIS RIVER BOY SO FAR AWAY
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
AND TAKE ME ALL THE WAY TO NEW ORLEANS
BIG RIVER KEEP ROLLIN’
AND LET ME LIVE THESE CRAZY HEARTED DREAMS

PRE-CHORUS 3
THE TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO TAKE ME THERE
AIN’T GOT A LOT TIME TO SPARE
SO WON’T YOU LEAD THE WAY
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT PRICE YOU KNOW I’LL PAY
AND I CAN LEAVE MOST ANY DAY
I’LL BE FAR AWAY YEA YEA YEA YEA YEA

(CHORUS)
