The Water Is Wide  Steeleye Span

Another great song by Steeleye Span, this time Gay Woods takes over the lead vocals.
There is a s[D]hip[G] that sails the s[D]ea
It is loaded d[Bm]eep as deep can [A]be.
But not so d[D]eep as the l[G]ove I'm [D]in
That I know [Bm]not if I sink or s[A]wim
[D] [-] [G] [-] [D]  
[Bm] [-] [A]  
[D] [-] [G] [-] [D]  
[Bm] [-] [A]  
The water is w[D]ide[G] we cannot get [D]o'er
And neither h[Bm]ave I wings to f[A]ly.
Give me a b[D]oat[G] that will carry t[D]wo
That boat shall r[A]ow my love and [D]I
