[C]I met my girl at [G]Woolwich Pier be[C]neath the [F]big crane [G]standing
And [C]all the love I [G]felt for her it [C]passed all [G]under[C]standing
Took her sailing [Dm]on the river, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]London town was [Dm]mine to give her, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly
[G]Made the Thames in [Dm]to a crown, [F]flow [C]sweet [G]river [C]flow
[C]Made a brooch of [Dm]Silvertown, [F]sweet [C]Thames flow [G]soft[C]ly

[C]At London Yard I [G]held her hand, at [C]Blackwell [F]Point I [G]faced her
At the [C]Isle of Dogs I [G]kissed her mouth and [C]ten[G]derly em[C]braced her
Heard the bells of [Dm]Greenwich ringing, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]All the time my [Dm]heart was singing, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly
[G]Limehouse Reach I [Dm]gave her there, [F]flow [C]sweet [G]river [C]flow
[C]As a ribbon [Dm]for her hair, [F]sweet [C]Thames flow [G]soft[C]ly

[C]From Shadwell Dock to [G]Nine Elms Reach, we [C]cheek to [F]cheek were [G]dancin’.
Her [C]necklace made of [G]London Bridge,her [C]beauty [G]was en[C]hancin’.
Kissed her once [Dm]again at Wapping, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]After that there [Dm]was no stoppin’, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly
[G]Richmond Park it was [Dm]her ring, [F]flow [C]sweet [G]river [C]flow
[C]I’d have given her [Dm]anything, [F]sweet [C]Thames flow [G]soft[C]ly

And [C]she from Kew to [G]Isleworth, her [C]love for [G]me was [C]swearin’.
Love had set my heart [Dm]aburnin’, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]Never saw the [Dm]tide was turnin’, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly
[G]Gave her Hampton [Dm]Court to twist, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]Into a bracelet for [Dm]her wrist, [F]sweet [C]Thames flow [G]soft[C]ly

[C]And now, alas, the [G]tide has changed, my [C]love she [F]has gone [G]from me.
And the [C]winter’s frost has [G]touched my heart, and [C]left its [G]blight [C]upon me.
Creepin’ fog is [Dm]on the river, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]Sun and moon and [Dm]stars gone with her, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly
[G]Swift the Thames flows [Dm]to the sea, [F]flow [G]sweet [F]river [G]flow
[C]Bearin’ ships and [Dm]part of me, [F]sweet [C]Thames flow [G]soft[C]ly
