You should know your chords, but just in case, they are at the bottom of the tab.




  C                      D           G
On a crowded beach in a distant time
            C                D          G
At the height of summer see a boy of five
             C         D              G
At the water's edge so nimble and free
        C                        D              G
Jumping over the ripples looking way out to sea



Now a man comes up from amoungst the throng
Takes the young boy's hand and his hand is strong
And the child feels safe, yeah the child feels brave
As he's carried in those arems up and over the waves

C           D     G  
Deeper water,  
C           D     G
deeper water,
C           D     G
deeper water, 
C           D     G
calling him on

(same chord progression, but now its powerchords.)

C                     D                        G
Let's move forward now and the child's seventeen
     C                   D                       G
With a girl in the back seat tugging at his jeans
    C                       D                         G
And she knows what she wants, she guides with her hand
    C                      D                     G
As a voice cries inside him - I'm a man, I'm a man!

Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling him on

C           D     G  
Deeper water,  
C           D     G
deeper water,
C           D     G
deeper water, 
C           D     G
calling him on

C                       D                       G
Now the man meets a woman unlike all the rest
    C                       D                   G
He doesn't know it yet but he's out of his depth
     C                     D                   G
And he thinks he can run, it's amatter of pride
    C                      D                    G
But he keeps coming back like a cork on the tide
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/paul_kelly/deeper_water_crd.html ]
   C                        D                    G
Well the years hurry by and the woman loves the man
     C                       D                     G
Then one night in the dark she grabs hold of his hand
     C                       D               G
Says 'There, can you feel it kicking inside!'
    C                      D                    G
And the man gets a shiver right up and down his spine

C           D     G  
Deeper water,  
C           D     G
deeper water,
C           D     G
deeper water, 
C           D     G
calling him on


(back to regular chords for this verse)
C                        D                     G
So the clock moves around and the child is a joy
    C                     D                   G
But Death doesn't care just who it destroys
    C                    D                    G
Now the woamn gets sick, thins down to the bone
    C                     D                  G
She says 'Where I'm going next, I'm going alone'

C           D     G  
Deeper water,  
C           D     G
deeper water,
C           D     G
deeper water, 
C           D     G
calling him on
C                   D               G
On a distant beach lonely and wild
  C                 D              G
At a later time see a man and a child
    C                D                 G
And the man takes the child up into his arms
 C               D              G
Takes her over the breakers
 C               D             G
To where the water is calm

C           D     G  
Deeper water,  
C           D     G
deeper water,
C           D     G
deeper water, 
C           D     G
calling him on
