"Proud Mary" is a rock ’n’ roll song written by John Fogerty and first recorded by his band Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was released by Fantasy Records as a single from the band's second studio album, Bayou Country, which was issued by the same record company in January 1969. The single is generally considered to have been released in early January 1969, although at least one source states that it came out just before Christmas 1968. The song became a major hit in the United States, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1969, the first of five singles to peak at No. 2 for the group.





Lyrics


Left a good job in the city,

Workin' for the man ev'ry night and day,

And I never lost one 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.


Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis,

Pumped a lot of 'pane down in New Orleans,

But I never saw the good side of the city,

'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.


Big wheel keep on turnin',

Proud Mary keep on burnin',

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.


Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.


If you come down to the river,

Bet you gonna find some people who live.

You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money,

People on the river are happy to give.


Big wheel keep on turnin',

Proud Mary keep on burnin',

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.


Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.
