“Deja Vu (All Over Again)”

Did you hear ’em talkin’ ’bout it on the radio
Did you try to read the writing on the wall
Did that voice inside you say I’ve heard it all before
It’s like deja vu all over again

Day by day I hear the voices rising
Started with a whisper like it did before
Day by day we count the dead and dying
Ship those bodies home while the networks all keep score

Did you hear ’em talkin’ ’bout it on the radio
Could your  eyes believe the writing on the wall
Did that voice inside you say I’ve heard it all before
It’s like deja vu all over again

One by one I see the old ghosts rising
Stumblin’ ‘cross Big Muddy
Where the light gets dim
Day after day another Mamma’s crying
She’s lost her precious child
To a war that has no end

Did you hear ’em talkin’ ’bout it on the radio
Did you stop to read the writing at the wall
Did that voice inside you say
I’ve seen this all before
It’s like deja vu all over again
It’s like deja vu all over again

“Proud Mary”

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

Big wheel keep on turnin’,
Proud Mary keep on burnin’.
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.
