Verse 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/madness/night_boat_to_cairo_crd_ver_2.html ]
     A
Itís just gone noon
     Gm
Half past monsoon
       A                  Gm
On the banks of the river nile
     A
Here comes the boat
     Gm
Only half-afloat
        A                 Gm
Oarsman grins a toothless smile
     A
Only just one more
        Gm
To this desolate shore
     A                    Gm
Last boat along the river nile
        A
Doesnít seem to care
        Gm
No more wind in his hair
      A                     Gm
As he reaches his last half mile
        Dm
The oar snaps in his hand
          Fm
Before he reaches dry land
        Dm                       Bb7
But the sound doesnít deafen his smile
     Dm
Just pokes at wet sand
        Fm
With an oar in his hand
       Dm                 C
Floats off down the river nile
                    B     A7   Bb  B  C
Floats off down the river nile
