Richard Thompson – Old Thames Side lyrics

As I was walking down by old Thames side
Well my foot and my heart seemed to falter
For there you were standing by Custom House Landing
Like Venus risen out of the water

Chorus
And they'll say it's because I'm a fool in love
That I swear there's no beauty before you
But those that deny or think that I lie
Well those are the ones never saw you

O there never was anyone perfect as you
As you stood there and smiled to greet me
And I looked for a phrase to capture your ways
But that's a task will always defeat me
