Proud Mary
Solomon Burke 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

Been alot of places like Memphis
And I had a lot of fun 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

This is ABSOLUTELY the best version of this fabulous John Fogerty song...Reverend Burke not only adds intense personal soul to it, but through his spoken-word commentary he puts the song in a wonderful context that adds to the enjoyment of it...the world lost a great voice when he passed away.

Tinas versionnis the best

Ken Q

Best performance by Proud Mary, ever

Good version, never heard it before but I've always loved both the original and the I/T Turner version since I was a child. Love the chorus delivery and the funky horn section.

AFM Hotrodder

Extremely well crafted version, tightly played, and John Fogerty's favourite cover.  Independently a great song.

Norbert.....thanks for the upload, this is the first time I'm ever heard this version and it is great and I do appreciate your work to do this. Lawson di Ransom Canyon

   "Гордая Мэри", 100% -ная классика. Как и все великие песни. имеет множество версий - Элвис Пресли, Тина Тернер, Брюс Спрингстин, Дэвид Боуи и др. в разные годы исполняли эту композицию.  Но сам автор, Джон Фогерти, больше всего был впечатлен версией  Соломона Берка...

Спасибо!

Когда я был маленький - мне исполнение Тома Джонса нравилось. Соломона Бёрка совсем недавно узнал, и он очень крут.
