The Water Is Wide
Pete Seegers Version

D            D    G6                D    D 
The Water Is Wide   I Can Not Cross Over
D       Bm - Bm7  G6         A    A7
And Neither Have     I Wings To Fly
F#M F#M                 Bm - Bm/A
But  Build Me A Boat     That Can Carry Two
G6             D/F#    A7       D   D
And Both Shall Roam My Love And I

D            D G6                  D   D 
A Ship There Is  And She Sails The Sea
D      Bm -Bm7  G6           A  A7
Sailing As Deep    As  Deep Can Be
F#M F#M                  Bm - Bm/A
But Not So Deep    As The Love I Am In
G6       D/F#  A7      D    D
I Know Not How I Sink Or Swim

G         D   G6                  D   D 
I Leaned My Back Against Some Young Oak
D         Bm -Bm7 G6           A   A7
Thinking That He     Was A Trusty Tree
F#M F#M             Bm - Bm/A
But First He Bent    And Then He Broke
G6       D/F#        A7      D   D
And Thus Did My    False Lo Ve And Me

G      D   G6              D      D 
I Put My Hand Into Some Soft Greens
D        Bm - Bm7 G6        A    A7
Thinking The Sweetest Flower To Find
        F#M F#M         Bm - Bm/A
I Pricked My    Fin -   Ger To  The Bone
G6       D/F#     A7     D     D
And Left The Sweetest Flower Alone

G        D       G6        D    D 
Oh Love Is Handsome, Love Is Fine
D     Bm -Bm7     G6          A   A7
Gay As A Jewel, When First It Is New
F#M F#M           Bm - Bm/A
But Love Grows Old,    And Waxes Cold
G6     D/F#      A7    D    D
And Fades Away, Like Summer Dew

G        D     G6             D    D 
The Seagulls Wheel, They Turn And Dive
D        Bm -Bm7   G6       As A7
The Mountain Stands Beside Th E Sea
F#M F#M                 Bm - Bm/A
This World We Know    Turns Round And Round
G6      D/F#       A7s     Ds  D
And All For Them - And You And Me.
