The Water Is Wide
(Traditional)


(She plays Drop D, but it gets kinda difficult with low chords such as G and F#m)


Intro: D  Gmaj7  Em7  Asus4
       D  Dsus4  D


    G     A  D     Gmaj7  Em7  Asus4       D   Dsus4  D
The water is wide,           I can't cross over
    D  A/C#  Bm  Bm/A  G   Em7      Asus4  A
And neither have         I wings to fly
     A  A/G F#m   D7                G   G/F#  Em7
Give me a   boat     that can carry two
               F#m  Em7   Asus4 A   D
And both shall row,    my love  and I

    G    A  D      Gmaj7  Em7      Asus4   D   Dsus4  D
Oh, love is gentle             and love is kind
    D   A/C# Bm    Bm/A  G      Em7        Asus4  A
The sweetest flower        when first it's new
    A    A/G   F#m  D7           G   G/F#  Em7
but love grows old     and waxes cold
          Fm   Em7     Asus4   D
and fades away    like morning dew


[Solo with basically the same chords]


      G  A D    Gmaj7  Em7         Asus4     D    Dsus4  D
There is a ship            and she sails the sea
      D  A/C# Bm  Bm/A  G    Em7      Asus4  A
She's loaded  deep        as deep can be
    A   A/G F#m   D7                 G   G/F#  Em7
But not as  deep     as the love I'm in
           F#m   Em7  Asus4   D
I know not how      I sink or swim


    G     A  D     Gmaj7  Em7  Asus4       D   Dsus4  D
The water is wide,           I can't cross over
    D  A/C#  Bm  Bm/A  G   Em7      Asus4  A
And neither have         I wings to fly
     A  A/G F#m   D7                G   G/F#  Em7
Give me a   boat     that can carry two
               F#m  Em7   Asus4 A   D
And both shall row,    my love  and I
    G          Asus4  A               D  Dsus4 D
And both shall row,      my love  and I
