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

Verse 2: (use verse 1 chords)
Oh, great river, your waters ramble wild
The horses shiver and bite against the bridle
But I will cross if mine own horse is pulled from me 
Though my mother cries that if I try I sure will drowned be
Will drowned be, will drowned be, will drowned be 

Chorus Chords:
            D   Dm              A   F#m
But if you calm     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 1 chords)
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 wings
And I would cross your breadth and rest my breast about her amber ring 
Her amber ring, her amber ring 

Chorus Chords:
            D   Dm              A   F#m
But if you calm     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 

              Dm 
On my, on my return

i think this tab is slightly more accurate than the other versions-- except the beginning verse part is still wrong--i think it clearly is
e|----0--0---0----0--0---0----0--0---0----0--0---0--0--|
B|----1--1---1----1--1---1----1--1---1----1--1---1--1--|
G|----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2--2--|
D|----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2----2--2---2--2--|
A|--0------0-------------------------------------------|
E|--------------1------1----3------3----1------0---0---|
