Verse 1:

     C                    Bbm
It's just gone noon, half past Monsoon,
       C                  Bbm
On the banks of The River Nile.
     C                    Bbm
Here comes the boat, only half-afloat,
        C                 Bbm
Oarsman grins a toothless smile.

     C                      Bbm
Only just one more, to this desolate shore,
     C                    Bbm
Last boat along The River Nile.
        C                     Bbm
Doesn't seem to care; no more wind in his hair,
      C                     Bbm
As he reaches his last half mile.

        Fm                           C#7
The oar snaps in his hand, before he reaches dry land,
        Fm                       C#7
But the sound doesn't deafen his smile.
     Fm                         C#7
Just pokes at wet sand, with an oar in his hand;
       Fm                 Eb
Floats off down the River Nile,
                    D     C7   C#  D  Eb  E
Floats off down the River Nile.
