Verse 1:
It?s [A]just gone noon
Half [Gm]past monsoon
On the [A]banks of the river [Gm]nile
Here [A]comes the boat
Only [Gm]half-afloat
Oarsman [A]grins a toothless [Gm]smile
Only [A]just one more
To this [Gm]desolate shore
Last [A]boat along the river [Gm]nile
Doesn?t [A]seem to care
No more [Gm]wind in his hair
As he [A]reaches his last half [Gm]mile
The oar [Dm]snaps in his hand
Before he [Fm]reaches dry land
But the [Dm]sound doesn?t deafen his [Bb7]smile
Just [Dm]pokes at wet sand
With an [Fm]oar in his hand
Floats [Dm]off down the river [C]nile
Floats off down the [B]river [A7]nile[Bb] [B] [C]
