Water Is Wide

James Taylor

  Capo III in F 

  D A4 
 
The water is wide  
  G D 
I can't cross over  
  D/C# Bm 
And neither have  
  Em A4 A 
I wings to fly  
  F#m 
Build me a boat  
  D7sus D7 Bm G6 
That can carry two  
  F#m A 
And both shall row  
 
My love and I  

  G A D 
There is a ship  
  G D 
And she sails the sea  
  D/C# Bm 
She's loaded deep  
  Em A4 A 
As deep can be  
  F#m 
But not so deep  
  D7sus D7 Bm G6 
As the love I'm in  
  F#m A 
I know not how  
 
To sink or swim  

  G A D 
Oh love is handsome  
  G A D 
And love is fine  
  D/C# Bm 
The sweetest flower  
  Em A4 A 
When first it's new  
  F#m 
But love grows old  
  D7sus D7 Bm G6 
And waxes cold  
  F#m A 
And fades away  
  Bm 
Like summer dew  

 instrumental G D  D/C# Bm  G A4 A 
  F#m 
Build me a boat  
  D7sus D7 Bm G6 
That can carry two  
  F#m A 
And both shall row  
  Bm G6 
My love and I  
  F#m A 
And both shall row  
 
My love and I
