Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high

VERSE:
I guess he lost control, and welcomed in the night
It was too much for him, what were his thoughts that night?
The river thames is cold, it keeps on flowing on
But it left Dave alone, it just kept flowing on.

Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high

BREAK:
G#           A             B                   C#
Late night a street in the west of the city
There was a place there where he lost himself
Strange feelings did he feel there, strange people
Did he meet there, angry sounds did he hear there
D                         A
Like the howling of bullsÖ..

CHORUS:
E          B           A             D                A           E
Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
Iím not going to cry        I bet he hit the water high
