(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

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
