OLD FATHER THAMES (Lyrics: Raymond Wallace / Music: Betsy O'Hogan) Peter Dawson - 1933 Bob & Alf Pearson - 1933 Foster Richardson - 1933 Gracie Fields - 1938 John Hanson - 1957 Neil Williams - 1964 Also recorded by: The Band Of The Coldstream Guards; Denis Hayward's Organisation; Bill Newman; Gregory Yurisich; The Band Of The Grenadier Guards; Wally Stott & His Orch. There's some folks who always worry And some folks who never care But in this world of rush and hurry It matters neither here nor there Be steady and realistic Don't hanker for gold or gems Be carefree and optimistic Like Old Father Thames High in the hills, down in the dales Happy and fancy free Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea What does he know, what does he care Nothing for you or me Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea He never seems to worry Doesn't care for fortune's fame He never seems to hurry But he gets there just the same Kingdoms my come, kingdoms may go Whatever the end may be Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea The best way, a heaven blessed way Just try to be always kind It doesn't matter what the rest say You're bound to leave them far behind It's your job to do your duty Be faithful to all your friends For England and home and beauty Like Old Father Thames High in the hills, down in the dales Happy and fancy free Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea What does he know, what does he care Nothing for you or me Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea He never seems to worry Doesn't care for fortune's fame He never seems to hurry But he gets there just the same Kingdoms my come, kingdoms may go Whatever the end may be Old Father Thames keeps rolling along Down to the mighty sea (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2017)
