Sweet Thames Flow Softly-Lyrics And Chords by Ewan McColl. Recorded by Christy Moore. Sheet music notes included.

[G]I met my girl at [D]Woolwich Pier be[G]neath the [C]big crane [G]standing
And all the love I[D] felt for her it[G] passed all [D]under[G]standing
Took her sailing [C]on the river,[G] flow [D]sweet [G]river [D]flow
[G]London town was [C]mine to give her, [G]sweet [D]Thames flow [C]soft[C]ly
[D]Made the Thames in[D7]to a crown,[C] flow[G] [D]sweet river flow
Made a brooch of [D7]Silver town,[C] sweet [G]Thames flow [D7]soft[G]ly
 
At London Yard I held her hand, at Blackwell Point I faced her
At the Isle of Dogs I kissed her mouth and tenderly embraced her
Heard the bells of Greenwich ringing, flow sweet river flow
All the time my heart was singing, sweet Thames flow softly
Limehouse Reach I gave her there, flow sweet river flow
As a ribbon for her hair, sweet Thames flow softly
 
From Putney Bridge to Nine Elms Reach we cheek to cheek were dancing
A necklace made of London Bridge her beauty was enhancing
Kissed her once again at Wapping, flow sweet river flow
After that there was no stopping, sweet Thames flow softly
Gave her Hampton Court to twist, flow sweet river flow
Into a bracelet for her wrist, sweet Thames flow softly
But now, alas, the tide has changed, my love she has gone from me
And winter's frost has touched my heart and put a blight upon me
Creeping fog is on the river, flow sweet river flow
Sun and moon and stars gone with her, sweet Thames flow softly
Swift the Thames runs to the sea, flow sweet river flow
Bearing ships and part of me, sweet Thames flow softly
