B -------2-3-2----------2---2---
G -----2-------2------2---2---2-

E ------------------------------

The above diagram depicts the picking pattern
used for the entire song, using the "A" chord
as an example.  Just play the correct strings
in the right order with each chord, and
voila!, you have yourself this song.

*verse one*
C
the water is wide, I can't cross over
    C5      Gsus
and neither I
           G
have wings to fly
          C5   C
give me a boat that can carry two
C
And we both shall row, my love and I

*verse two*
C
my love is gentle, and love is kind
             C5   Gsus
the sweetest flower
              G
when first it blooms
               C5   C
but love grows old
C
and waxes cold
C
and fades away like morning dew

*verse three*
C
there is a ship that sails the sea
             C5
she's loaded deep
Gsus        G
as deep can be
C5         C
but not as deep as the love I made
C
I know not how to sink or swim

*play one full verse as this is The Bridge*

*verse four*
C
the water is wide, I can't cross over
    C5      Gsus
and neither I
              G
have wings to fly
          C5
give me a boat
C
that can carry two
C
and both shall row, my love and I
C
and both shall row
C
my love and I
