                Roger McGuinn        The Water Is Wide           traditional 
G                 C                       G

The water is wide I can not cross over 
                 Em         D
And neither have I wings to fly 
                G     Bm             Em    C
But  build me a boat  that can carry two 
               Am               D   G
And both shall roam my love and I 
             G      C             G
A ship there is and she sails the sea 
                Em           D
Sailing as deep as  deep can be
           G    Bm               Em    C
But not so deep as the love I am in 
       Am                D             G
I know not how I sink or swim 
G                C                  G
I leaned my back against some young oak  
              Em               D
Thinking that he was a trusty tree 
             G    Bm          Em   C
But first he bent and then he broke 
          Am               D   G
And thus did my false love and me
