Tina Turner: Proud Mary

Updated on December 13, 2016

And Now Tina Turner

You know Tina's signature Proud Mary. It begins with the monologue:

"Y know, every now and then

I think you might like to hear something from us

Nice and easy

But theres just one thing

You see we never ever do nothing

Nice and easy

We always do it nice and rough

So were gonna take the beginning of this song

And do it easy

Then were gonna do the finish rough

This is the way we do proud mary"



Proud Mary is her most popular song and is one of two her recordings that has been represented in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Proud Mary Lyrics - These lyrics are definitely a classic!

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

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

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

Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen

Big wheel keep on turning

Proud mary keep on burning

And we're rolling, rolling

Rolling on the river

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
