G|----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2--2--| repeat,

Verse 1 (use verse tab)
Annan water, you loom so deep and wide 
I'll cross over if you would stem the tide 
Build a boat that I might thwart the other side 
To reach the farther shore where my true love lies in wait for me 
In wait for me, in wait for me, in wait for me 

Verse 2: (use verse tab)
Oh, gray river, your waters ramble while 
The horses shiver and bide against the bridal 
But I will cross if mine own horse is pulled from me 
Though my mother cries that if I try I sure will drown it be 
Will drown it be, will drown it be, will drown it be 

Chorus Chords:
            D   Dm              A   F#m
But if you call     and let me pass 
         D           E                 A   A7
You may render me a wreck when I come back 
               D   Dm                A     A7
So calm your waves     and slow the churn 
             D               E            [start verse tabs here]
And you may have my precious bones on my return 

Verse 3: (use verse tab)
Annan water, oh hear my true love's call 
Hear her holler above your water's pall 
God, that I could that my two arms could give me way 
And I would cross your breath and rest my breast about her amber ring 
Her amber ring, her amber ring 

Chorus Chords:
But if you call and let me pass 
You may render me a wreck when I come back 
So calm your waves and slow the churn 
and you may have my precious bones
On my, on my return

I'm thinking the bass notes go
(Y'know, with the appropriate Am strumming between 'em.)
