The Water Chords
The Water

Verse 1

C             G           F
All that I have is a river
Am                              E
The river is always my home
C       F
Lord, take me away 
C        F
For I just cannot stay
C              G                F
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones

Chorus

C          G             Am          F
The water sustains me without even trying
C            G               Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
F            C
With my dying

Verse 2

C                G                  F
Please help me build a small boat
Am                           E
One that'll ride on the flow
C           F
Where the river runs deep
C            F
And the larger fish creep
C             G                F
I'm glad of what keeps me afloat

Chorus

C             G                  Am              F
The water sustains me without even trying
C             G                     Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
F             C
With my dying

Verse 3

C              G             F
Now deeper the water I sail
Am                E
And faster the current I'm in
C           F
But each night brings the stars
C           F
And the song in my heart 
C              G                     F
Is a tune for the Journeyman's tale

Chorus

C               G               Am             F
The water sustains me without even trying
C                G                   Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
Am 
With my dying

Bridge

Em                       F
Now the land that I knew is a dream
Em                       F
And the light in the distance grows faint
C                F
So wide is my river
C               F
The horizon a sliver
C            G            Am        F
The artist has run out of pain

Verse 4

C               G                F
Where the blue of the sea meets the sky
Am                        E
And the big yellow sun leads me home
C             F
I'm everywhere now
C              F
The way is a vow 
C                  G               F
To the wind of each breath by and by

Chorus

C                G                 Am           F
The water sustains me without even trying
C              G                Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
F             C
With my dying.
