Sweet Thames Flow Softly Lyrics

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
