Found the lyrics, no chords or tab. Sorry.

RIVERBOAT FANTASY
Kent Dowell

Ch. I can still hear the riverboat's wheel
    Smell the black smoke rolling
    See the people waving
    Ridin' on the river's Delta Queen

1. When I was just a young man I had a fantasy
   I would be a captain of the Queen
   Each morning I would run down by the riverside
   Watch her as she'd gone passing by

Ch.

2. Now I'm almost faded, it's been a long long time
   Since I've had a captain's dream of mine
   Delta Queen has come and gone and memories a few
   Exept the day that my captain's dream comes true

Ch.

Ch.

    Ridin' on the river's Delta Queen

David Wilcox version?
      
    RIVERBOAT FANTASY
          (David Wilcox)

F
"Sittin on a riverboat, havin a party
Bb               F
Me and my Cajun queen
F
She's turnin 21 on the Mississippi River
G                         C
Headin down to New Orleans
    F                  Bb
The year is 1894 - C'mon, baby and love me some more
    F
Her dark eyes flash like a gambler's rings
                                 C            F
She shakes her pretty head and sings

Chorus

F
Life for me is a Riverboat Fantasy
Bb                         F
Watchin the sun go down
F
A rock'n roll band and a reefer in my hand
         G                               C
Now look at those wheels go round!
F
Cocaine kisses and moonshine misses
Bb                     F
That's the life for me
F                                                 D
I'm sailing away from my heartache
         G             C    F
On a Riverboat Fantasy.


Can't think, can't drink any more whiskey
I coulda drunk a river dry
Mmmm this old boat is just sittin in the moonlight
Catchin the gleam in her eye
Showers of rain come pourin down
The sky full of stars like a French lace gown
Shimmer, glimmer, I think I'm gonna fall - whoops!
Catch me mama, that's all   

(Chorus)

Delta sun beat down like a hammer hmm
It give the low-down blues
I got a cotton gin, a wheel in spin
And shake the dust from my shoes
I made my money, I found me a honey
To tickle me under my chin
When morning comes, a ride into town
Then worry bout the shape I'm in.

(Chorus)

************************************************************************

I did the basic chords "by ear" - and they're the same for all 3 verses. Might try adding 7ths, though - especially for the G.

Have fun!   daylia

RIVERBOAT FANTASY
(written by: David Wilcox)

Sittin' on a riverboat
Havin' a party
Me and my Cajun Queen
She's turnin' twenty-one on the Mississippi river
Headin' down to New Orleans
The year is 1894
Oh come on mama
And love me some more
Her dark eyes flash
Like a gambler's rings
She shakes her pretty head and sings

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin'the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy

Can't think, can't drink
Anymore whisky
I could'a drunk a river dry
Mmmmm...this old boat she's
Just sittin' in the moonlight
Catchin' the gleam in her eye
Showers of rain come pourin' down
The sky full of stars
Like a french lace gown
Shimmer, glimmer
I think I'm gonna fall
Whoops catch me mama, that's all

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin' the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy

Delta sun beats down like a hammer
Mmmm....it gives the low down blues
I've got a cotton gin
I'll weave and spin
And shake the dust from my shoes
I made my money
I found me a honey
To tickle me under my chin
When mornin' comes
I'll ride into town
And worry 'bout the shape I'm in

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin' the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
Yes it is
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy

~Masato
