The Water is Wide

Traditional arranged by The Cowboy Junkies


[NC] The water is [D] wide I cannot cross over,
neither have [Bm] I wings to [A] fly
Give me a [F#m] boat that can carry [Bm] two,
and both shall [A] row my love and [D] I

[NC] Oh love is [D] gentle and love is kind,
the sweetest [Bm] flower when first it's [A] new
But love grows [F#m] old and waxes [Bm] cold,
and fades [A] away like morning [D] dew

solo on verse

The [D] water is wide I cannot cross over,
neither have [Bm] I wings to [A] fly
Give me a [F#m] boat that can carry [Bm] two,
and both shall [A] row my love and [Bm] I
And both shall [A] row [NC] my love and I

[D] Mmmm, mmm [Bm] mmmmm,
[A] mmmmm [F#m] mm, mmm [Bm] mmmm
Mmmmm [A] hmmm mmmm [Bm] mm,
Hmmm [A] mmmmm mmmm [D] mmm
