Sweet Thames, flow softly
author of text

Considering the significance of the Thames, which bisects London geographically and in many ways culturally, there are very few songs about it. So I was happy to discover Ewan MacColl’s romantic boat trip, Sweet Thames, flow softly. MacColl added a note when this was published: ‘Pay no attention to the fact that some of the places are geographically out of order. This is poetic licence.’
