Proud Mary

“Proud Mary”
(from “What’s Love Got To Do With It” soundtrack)

You know
Every now and then I think you might like to hear something from us nice, easy
There’s just one thing
You see we never ever do nothing nice, easy
We always do it nice and rough

And we’re gonna take the beginning of this song and do it easy
But then we’re gonna do the finish rough
That’s the way we do
Proud Mary

Left a good job down in the city
Workin’ for the Man every night and day
But I never lost one minute of sleepin’
I was worryin’ ’bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Listen to the story

Left a good job down in the city
Workin’ for the Man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin’
And I was worryin’ ’bout the way that things might have been

You know that big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
You know I pumped a lot of ‘tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Until I hitched a ride on the river boat queen

You know that big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
And we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river
We’re rolling on the river

Say we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river,
We’re rolling on the river

I left a good job in the city
Workin’ for the Man every night and day
And I never lost a minute of sleepin’
Worryin’ ’bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river
Say we’re rollin’, we’re rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Alright

Oh, I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
And I pumped a lot of ‘tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a city
‘Til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
And we’re rollin’, so we’re rollin’, we’re rollin’ on the river
I tell you we’re rollin’, rollin’, we’re rollin’ on the river

Alright

If you come down to the river
I bet you’re gonna find some people who live
And you don’t have to worry if you got no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin’
Proud Mary keep on burnin’
And we’re rollin’, and we’re rollin’, and we’re rollin’ on the river
Tell me one more time
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

Alright

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river
Alright then
We’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

So we’re rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river
I tell you we’re rollin’, we’re rollin’, we’re rollin’ on the river

Alright

John Fogerty – Don’t You Wish It Was True

Lyrics
I dreamed I walked in heaven
Just the other night
There was so much beauty
So much light
Don’t you wish it was true
Don’t you wish it was true
An angel took my hand
Said you don’t have to hurry
Got all the time in the world
Don’t worry
Don’t you wish it was true
Lord, don’t you wish it was true
But if tomorrow
Everybody was your friend
Anyone could take you in
No matter what or where you’ve been
But if tomorrow
Everybody had enough
The world wasn’t quite so rough
Lord, don’t you wish it was true
He said the world’s gonna change
And it’s starting today
There’ll be no more armies
No more hate
Don’t you wish it was true
Ah, don’t you wish it was true
And all the little children
Who live happily
There’ll be singing and laughter
Sweet harmony
Don’t you wish it was true
Lord, Don’t you wish it was true
But if tomorrow everybody under the sun
Was happy just living as one
No borders or battles to be won
But if tomorrow
Everybody was your friend
Happiness would never end
Lord, don’t you wish it was true
Alright
But if tomorrow everybody under the sun
Was happy just to live as one
No borders or battles to be won
But if tomorrow everybody was your friend
Happiness would never end
Lord, don’t you wish it was true
Lord, don’t you wish it was true
Alright
What a beautiful day
