																				Intro: Am

Am                  G                  F   E

   Annan water, you loom so deep and wide
Am                       G                    F   E

   I would cross over if you would stem the tide
Am                            G                F   E

   Build a boat that I might ford the other side
Am                                   G              F      E         Am
   To reach the farthest shore where my true love lies in wait for me
F   E           Am
   In wait for me
F   E            Am
   In wait for me
F     E            Am
   In wait for me




    

                      G              F   E

   O grey river, your waters ramble wild
Am                       G                  F    E

   The horses shiver and bite against the bridle
Am                               G                    F   E

   But I will cross if mine own horse is pulled from me
Am                             G            F          E        Am
   Though my mother cries that if I try, I sure will drowned be
F     E           Am
   Will drowned be
F     E           Am
   Will drowned be
F       E         Am   A

   Will drowned be


         D Dm            A   F#m
If you calm and let me pass
         D            E                 A   A7
You may render me a wreck when I come back
              D  Dm                A   F#m
So calm your waves and slow the churn
             D                E             Am
And you may have my precious bones on my return


[Interlude: Am  G  F  E (x2)]


Am                G                     F   E

   Annan Water, O hear my true love's call
Am                    G                 F   E

   Here her holler above your water's pall
Am                                G                   F   E

   God that I could, that my two arms could give me wing
Am                                    G                 F       E       Am
   And I would cross your breadth and rest my breast about her amber ring
F    E          Am
   Her amber ring
F      E         Am
   Her amber ring
F       E        Am    A

   Her amber ring


             D Dm            A   F#m
But if you calm and let me pass
         D            E                 A   A7
You may render me a wreck when I come back
              D  Dm                A   F#m
So calm your waves and slow the churn
             D                E

And you may have my precious bones on my
        Dm
On my return
