Proud Mary
(John Fogerty)

Left a good job in the city
Working for the Man every night and day
But I never lost a minute of sleeping
And I was worrying ’bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turning
Oh, but proud Mary keep on burning
Rolling
Rolling
Rolling on the river
Rolling
Rolling
Rolling on the river

I cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of pane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a city
‘Til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen

Big wheels keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
Rolling
Yeah Yeah
Rolling
Yeah Yeah
Rolling on the river
Rolling
Yeah Yeah
Rolling
Yeah Yeah
Rolling on the river

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
(Valerie Simpson, Nickolas Ashford)

If you need me
Call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Just call my name
And I’ll be there in a hurry
On that you can depend
And never worry

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from you

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from you

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Nothing can keep me
Keep me from you

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Nothing can keep me
Keep me from you

Never Can Say Goodbye
(Clifton Davis)

Never can say goodbye
No no no no, I
Never can say goodbye

Even though the pain and heartache
Seem to follow wherever I go
Though I try and try to hide my feelings
They always seem to show
Then you try to say you’re leaving
And I always got to say no

Tell me why
Tell me why
Is it so
Is it so
I got to let you go

Never can say goodbye
Never can say goodbye
No no no
No no no
Never can say goodbye
Never can say goodbye
No no no
No no no
No no no

Never can say goodbye
No no no no no, I
Never can say goodbye

Every time I think I had enough
I start heading for the door
There’s a very strange vibration
Piercing me right to the core
It says hang around you fool
You know you love me more and more

Tell me why
Tell me why
Is it so
Is it so
I got to let you go

Never can say goodbye
Never can say goodbye
No no no
No no no
Never can say goodbye
Never can say goodbye
No no no
No no no
Never can say goodbye
Never can say goodbye
No no no
No no no
No no no
No no no
