Liam Clancy - The Water Is Wide

CAPO: 3rd Fret

[INTRO:] C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G

[VERSE 1:]
             C       F            C   
The water is wide, I cannot cross o'er
            Am              G 
And neither have I wings to fly
          C   Am               C
Give me a boat that will carry two
    F          C   G            C
And both shall row, my love and I

[VERSE 2:]
                        F         C   
A ship there is and she sails the sea
             Am                G 
She's loaded deep, as deep can be
           C   Am               C
But not so deep as the love I'm in
  F        C G          C
I know not if I sink or swim

[VERSE 3:]
               F              C   
Down in the meadows the other day
            Am                    G 
A-gathering flowers both rich and gay
            C      Am               C
A-gathering flowers for the red and blue
  F      C      G                C
I little thought what love could do

[VERSE 4:]
             F              C   
I put my hand into one soft bush
             Am                 G 
Thinking the sweetest flower to find 
             C   Am              C
I pricked my finger right to the bone 
      F        C        G        C      G  C  G
And I left the sweetest flower behind 

[VERSE 5:]
  C                    F       C   
A love is handsome and love is kind 
         Am                    G 
Gay as a jewel when first it's new 
              C   Am                 C
But when it's old and it grows quite cold 
       F      C  G                 C
And it fades away like the morning dew

OUTRO: C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C
