Verse 1
C                            G
When the weather is fine you know it's the time
    F        G           C
For messing about on the river
                              G
If you take my advice there's nothing so nice
   F        G           C
As messing about on the river
        F             C             G            C
There's big boats and wee boats and all kinds of craft
F           C              D7           G
Puffers and keel boats and some with no raft
         C                         G
With the wind in your face there's no finer place
     F        G           C
Than messing about on the river

Verse 2
C                                      G
There are boats made from kits that'll reach you in bits
    F        G           C
For messing about on the river
                                 G
And you might want to skull in a glass fibred hull
   F        G           C
Go messing about on the river
F           C           G           C
Anchors and tillers and rudders and cleats
F              C           D7           G
Ropes that are sometimes referred to as sheets
         C                         G
With the wind in your face there's no finer place
     F        G           C
Than messing about on the river

Verse 3
C                      G
Skippers and mates and rowing club eights
    F        G           C
All messing about on the river
                             G
Capstans and quays where you tie up with ease
    F        G           C
All messing about on the river
F             C            G            C
Outboards and inboards and dinghies you sail
    F               C            D7           G
The first thing you learn is the right way to bale
     C                         G
In a one man canoe you're both skipper and crew
F        G           C
Messing about on the river

Verse 4
C                   G
Moorings and docks, tailors and locks
    F                    C
All messing about on the river
                              G
Whirlpools and weirs that you must not go near
F        G           C
Messing about on the river
F         C          G           C
Backwater places all hidden from view
   F           C            D7          G 
Mysterious wee islands just waiting for you
        C                       G
So I'll leave you right now, go cast off your bow
   F        G           C
Go messing about on the river
