The Water Is Wide  Karla Bonoff

Intro: D Gmaj7 Em7 Asus4
[D] [Dsus4] [D]  
The [G]water [A]is [D]wide, [Gmaj7] [Em7] I [Asus4]can't cross [D]over[Dsus4] [D]
And [D]nei[A/C#]ther h[Bm]ave [Bm/A] [G] I [Em7]wings to [Asus4]fly[A]
Give [A]me [A/G]a [F#m]boat [D7] that can carry [G]two[G/F#] [Em7]
And both shall [F#m]row, [Em7] my [Asus4]love [A]and [D]I
Oh, [G]love [A]is [D]gentle [Gmaj7] [Em7] and [Asus4]love is [D]kind[Dsus4] [D]
The [D]swee[A/C#]test [Bm]flower[Bm/A] [G] when [Em7]first it's [Asus4]new[A]
but [A]love [A/G]grows [F#m]old [D7] and waxes [G]cold[G/F#] [Em7]
and fades [Fm]away [Em7] like [Asus4]morning [D]dew
(Solo with basically the same chords)
There [G]is [A]a [D]ship [Gmaj7] [Em7] and she [Asus4]sails the [D]sea[Dsus4] [D]
She's [D]loa[A/C#]ded [Bm]deep[Bm/A] [G] as [Em7]deep can [Asus4]be[A]
But [A]not [A/G]as [F#m]deep [D7] as the love I'm [G]in[G/F#] [Em7]
I know not [F#m]how [Em7] I [Asus4]sink or [D]swim
The [G]water [A]is [D]wide, [Gmaj7] [Em7] I [Asus4]can't cross [D]over[Dsus4] [D]
And [D]nei[A/C#]ther h[Bm]ave [Bm/A] [G] I [Em7]wings to [Asus4]fly[A]
Give [A]me [A/G]a [F#m]boat [D7] that can carry [G]two[G/F#] [Em7]
And both shall [F#m]row, [Em7] my [Asus4]love [A]and [D]I
And [G]both shall [Asus4]row, [A] my love and [D]I[Dsus4] [D]
