Proud Mary

I LOVE hiking! ❤ I Iove looking at all the BEAUTIFUL trees, flowers, and various plants that surround me! It is especially lovely when I get to see streams and rivers when I hike. ❤

One song that has been stuck in my head lately is CCR‘s “Proud Mary.”

Lyrics:

Left a good job in the city
Workin’ for the man every 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
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river

The BEAUTIFUL Vistula River (Check out my post about my trip to Warsaw, Poland.)

The song is so catchy and puts me in a great mood! 🙂 What do you think of it?

When I was a kid, I remember enjoying Tina Turner‘s cover of the song.

It’s very different than CCR, but isn’t it so much fun!? 🙂 I remember watching her perform this song on TV and doing some AMAZING dance moves!

Did you know that Elvis also covered “Proud Mary”?

I REALLY enjoyed Elvis’ cover! It was very ELVIS! 😉

So, my question to you is: Who do you think did the song best? Please share your thoughts below. 🙂

Wishing you well! ❤
