Roger McGuinn        The Water Is Wide           traditional

G                 C                       G

The water is wide I can not cross over
                 Em         D
And neither have I wings to fly
                G     Bm             Em    C
But  build me a boat  that can carry two
               Am               D   G
And both shall roam my love and I
             G      C             G
A ship there is and she sails the sea
                Em           D
Sailing as deep as  deep can be
           G    Bm               Em    C
But not so deep as the love I am in
       Am                D             G
I know not how I sink or swim
G                C                  G
I leaned my back against some young oak
              Em               D
Thinking that he was a trusty tree
             G    Bm          Em   C
But first he bent and then he broke
          Am               D   G
And thus did my false love and me
