The Water Is Wide  Roger McGuinn



[G]The water is wide [C]I can not cross [G]over
And neither have [Em]I wings to [D]fly
But build me a [G]boat [Bm]that can carry [Em]two [C]
And both shall [Am]roam [D]my love and [G]I
A ship there [G]is and [C]she sails the [G]sea
Sailing as [Em]deep as deep can [D]be
But not so [G]deep [Bm]as the love I am [Em]in [C]
I know [Am]not how [D] I sink or [G]swim
[G]I leaned my back [C]against some young [G]oak
Thinking that [Em]he was a trusty t[D]ree
But first he [G]bent [Bm]and then he [Em]broke[C]
And thus [Am]did [D]my false love and [G]me
[Am] [D] [G]  
From the "Roger McGuinn" LP Columbia Records 1973
