I met my girl at Woolwich Pier Beneath a big crane standing And oh, the love I felt for her It passed all understanding Took her sailing on the river Flow, sweet river, flow London town was mine to give her Sweet Thames, flow softly Made the Thames into a crown Flow, sweet river, flow Made a brooch of Silvertown Sweet Thames, flow softly At London Yard I held her hand At Blackwall 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 Shadwell dock to Nine Elms Reach We cheek to cheek were dancing Her 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 Richmond Park, it was her ring Flow, sweet river, flow I'd have given her anything Sweet Thames, flow softly >From Rotherhithe to Putney Bridge My love I was declaring And she, from Kew to Isleworth Her love for me was swearing Love had set my heart a-burning Flow, sweet river, flow Never saw the tide was turning 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 (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2015)
