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

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
