Sweet Thames Flow Softly  James Keelaghan

CAPO: 4th Fret
I [C]met my love at [G]Woolwich Pier be[C]neath the 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 sweet [G]river flow[C]
London town was [Dm]mine to give her,[F] sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly[G]
Made the Thames into a crown, [F]flow [C]sweet river [G]flow
Made a brooch of Silver town, [F]sweet [C]Thames [G]flow soft[C]ly[G]
At [C]London Yard I [G]held her hand, at [C]Blackwell Point I [G]faced her
At the [C]Isle of Dogs I [G]kissed her mouth and [C]tender[G]ly embraced [C]her
Heard the bells of [Dm]Greenwich ringing, [F]flow sweet [G]river flow[C]
All the time my [Dm]heart was singing, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly[G]
Limehouse Reach I gave her there,[F] flow [C]sweet [G]river flow
As a ribbon for her hair,[F] sweet [C]Thames [G]flow soft[C]ly[G]
From [C]Shadwell Dock to [G]Nine Elms Reach, we [C]cheek to cheek were [G]dancing
A [C]necklace made of [G]London Bridge, her [C]beauty [G]was en[C]hancing
Kissed her once a[Dm]gain at Wapping, [F]flow sweet [G]river flow[C]
After that there [Dm]was no stopping, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly[G]
Richmond Park it was a ring,[F] flow [C]sweet [G]river flow
I'd have given anything,[F] sweet [C]Thames [G]flow soft[C]ly[G]
From [C]Rotherhithe to [G]Putney Bridge my [C]love I was de[G]claring
And [C]she from Kew to [G]Isleworth, her [C]love for [G]me was [C]swearing
Love it set my [Dm]heart to burning, [F]flow sweet [G]river flow[C]
Never saw the [Dm]tide was turning, [F]sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly[G]
Gave her Hampton Court to twist,[F] flow [C]sweet [G]river flow
Into a bracelet for her wrist,[F] sweet [C]Thames [G]flow soft[C]ly[G]
But [C]now, alas,[G] the tide has changed, my [C]love she has gone [G]from me
And [C]winter's chill has [G]touched my heart and [C]put a bl[G]ight u[C]pon me
Creeping fog is [Dm]on the river,[F] flow sweet [G]river flow[C]
Sun and moon and [Dm]stars gone with her,[F] sweet [G]Thames flow [C]softly[G]
Swift the Thames runs to the sea,[F] flow [C]sweet [G]river flow
Bearing ships and part of me,[F] sweet [C]Thames [G]flow soft[C]ly
[F]Sweet [C]Thames fl[G]ow soft[C]ly
