*verse one*
A
the water is wide, I can't cross over
    A5      Esus
and neither I
           E
have wings to fly
          A5   A
give me a boat that can carry two
A
And we both shall row, my love and I

*verse two*
A
my love is gentle, and love is kind
             A5   Esus
the sweetest flower
              E
when first it blooms
               A5   A
but love grows old
A
and waxes cold
A
and fades away like morning dew

*verse three*
A
there is a ship that sails the sea
             A5
she's loaded deep
Esus        E
as deep can be
A5         A
but not as deep as the love I made
A
I know not how to sink or swim

*play one full verse as this is The Bridge*

*verse four*
A
the water is wide, I can't cross over
    A5      Esus
and neither I
              E
have wings to fly
          A5
give me a boat
A
that can carry two
A
and both shall row, my love and I
A
and both shall row
A
my love and I
