Lyrics and chords:

(Em) (G) (D) (G)

The water is (G) wide, (C) I can't get (G) oer
Neither have (Em) I the wings to (D) fly
(D7)Give me a (Bm) boat that can carry (Em) two
And both shall (G) row, (D) my love and (G) I

A ship there (G) is and (C) she sails the (G) sea
She's loaded (Em) deep as deep can (D) be
(D7) But not so (Bm) deep as the love I'm (Em) in
I know not (G) if I (D) sink or (G) swim

Oh love be (G)hand(C)some and love be (G)kind
Gay as a (Em) jewel when first it's (D) new
(D7) But love grows (Bm) old and waxes (Em) cold
And fades aw(G)ay (D) like the morning (G) dew

The water is (G) wide, (C) I can't get (G) oer
Neither have (Em) I the wings to (D) fly
(D7)Give me a (Bm) boat that can carry (Em) two
And both shall (G) row, (D) my love and (G) I

Hi JoanneCooper, Thanks for sharing this with us! I really enjoyed the use of strings at key parts to help glue the elements together. Really well thought out. Nice work! smile
