The Water is Wide - Traditional

[Intro] A D C#m  E7


[Chorus]

             A     D                A     D 
The water is wide,    I can’t cross o'er.
                F#m  D                E    D
And neither have I      the wings to fly.
           C#m  F#m                 A     D
Build me a boat     that can carry two,
               C#m  E7    D        A
And both shall row,    my love and I.


[Verse 1]

             A  D                   A      D
There is a ship   and she sails the seas.
            F#m   D              E    D
She's laden deep,    as deep can be;
           C#m  F#m                  A   D  
But not so deep     as the love I'm in
           C#m  E7      D       A     Asus4  A
And I know not     if I sink or swim.


[Verse 3]

          A        D              A     D
O love is handsome    and love is fine
            F#m    D                 E    D
Bright as a jewel    when first it's new
               C#m  F#m           A    D  
but love grows old      and waxes cold
          C#m  E7          D       A    Asus4  A
And fades away    like the morning dew.
          C#m  E7          D       A    Asus4  A
And fades away    like the morning dew.


[Chorus]

             A     D                A     D 
The water is wide,    I can’t cross o'er.
                F#m  D                E    D
And neither have I      the wings to fly.
           C#m  F#m                 A     D
Build me a boat     that can carry two,
               C#m  E7    D        A
And both shall row,    my love and I.
