Subject: RE: Tune Req: Sweet Thames River flow Softly
Note that the DT text contains mistakes, as has been pointed out before. "Lighthouse" was presumably a duff guess for "Limehouse" made by someone who didn't know London. There are probably other mishearings.

Search tip: don't rely on what you think is the full name. In this case, there is no "river" in the song title. The river itself is either "Thames" or "river Thames"; never "Thames river".
