For those tuned GCEA, the intro is easy once you've got your fingers in position for the Gm chord - your second finger on the 3rd string from the bottom (the C string) never moves.
"Boat on the River" is a 1979 song by Styx, from their album Cornerstone. It was released as a single in 1980, but did not chart in the band's native United States. However, it was popular in several German-speaking countries, becoming a top-five hit on the German, Austrian and Swiss charts (reaching number one on the latter.)
