When the  
[C]weather is fine you  
[G]know it's a sign 

For  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

If you take my advice there's  
[G]nothing so nice 

As  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There's  
[F]long boats and  
[C]short boats and  
[G]all kinds of  
[C]craft 

And  
[F]cruisers and  
[C]keel boats and  
[D7]some with no  
[G7]draft 

So  
[C]take off your coat and  
[G]hop in a boat 

Go  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are  
[C]boats made from kits that'll  
[G]reach you in bits 

For  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

Or you might want to scull in a  
[G]fibre glass hull 

Just  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are  
[F]tillers and  
[C]rudders and  
[G]anchors and  
[C]cleats 

And  
[F]ropes that are  
[C]sometimes re 
[G7]ferred to as  
[G7]sheets 

With the  
[C]wind in your face there's  
[G]no finer place 

Than  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are  
[C]skippers and mates and  
[G]rowing club eights 

Just  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are pontoons and trots and  
[G]all sorts of knots 

For  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

With  
[F]inboards and  
[C]outboards and  
[G]dinghies you  
[C]sail 

The  
[F]first thing you  
[C]learn is the  
[D7]right way to  
[G7]bail 

In a  
[C]one-seat canoe, you're the  
[G]skipper and crew 

Just  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are  
[C]bridges and locks and  
[G]moorings and docks 

When  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There’s a whirlpools and weir that you  
[G]mustn't go near 

When  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river 

There are  
[F]backwater  
[C]places all  
[G]hidden from  
[C]view 

And  
[F]quaint little  
[C]islands just  
[D7]waiting for  
[G7]you 

So I'll  
[C]leave you right now, to  
[G]cast off your bow 

To  
[F]messing a 
[G7]bout on the  
[C]river
