Proud Mary

Tina Turner singing "Proud Mary" on the Wildest Dreams Tour [Amsterdam 1996]! I was absolutely blown away by this! Wow! I think she was ... I dunno... in her 50's when she did this tour. (And I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.) Amazing woman!

Here are the lyrics:

Y' know, every now and then
I think you might like to hear something from us
Nice and easy
But there's just one thing
You see we never ever do nothing
Nice and easy
We always do it nice and rough
So we're gonna take the beginning of this song
And do it easy
Then we're gonna do the finish rough
This is the way we do "Proud Mary"

(And we're) rolling, rolling, rolling on the river
Listen to the story now

I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
worrying 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turning
Oh the proud mary keep on burning
And we’re rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
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 a riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turning
Oh the proud mary keep on burning
And we’re rolling, rolling yeah
Rolling on the river
[repeat song from here once]

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

Big wheel keep on turning
Proud mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river.
