Deeper Water chords

Paul Kelly


This song is one of my favourites and surprisingly easy, it is three chords throughout, I've only listed the chords as I'm not good with solos etc. It is based on C, D and G, although D/F# is sometimes used: C D D/F# G e 0 2 2 3 B 1 3 3 0 G 0 2 2 0 D 2 0 0 0 A 3 - - 2 E - - 2 3 The whole song is four strums on C, then 2 on D, and 2 on G, for a better effect alternate between strumming and picking notes. The lyrics: C D G On a crowded beach in a distant time C D G At the height of the summer see a boy of five C D G At the waters edge so nimble and free C D G Jumpin over the waves looking way out to sea C D G (No words) C D G Now a man comes up from amongst the throng C D G takes the young boy's hands and his hand is strong C D G And the child feels safe, yeah the child feels brave C D G As he's carried in those arms up and over the waves, C D G Deeper water C D G Deeper water C D G Deeper calling him on C D G (no words) C D G (no words) C D G (no words) Lets move forward now and the childs seventeen With a girl in the back seat tuggin at his jeans And she knows what she wants, she guides with her hands And a voice cries inside him, I'm a man, I'm a man Deeper water Deeper water Deeper calling him on Now the man meets a woman unlike the rest Well he doesn't know it yet but he is out of his depth And he thinks he can run it's a matter of pride But he keeps coming back just like a cork on the tide. C D G (Different timing) Deeper water C D G Deeper water Now the years hurry by and the woman loves the man One night in bed he grabs a hold of his hand Says 'dad can you feel it kicking inside' 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 calling him on So the clock moves on and the child is a joy But death doesn't care just who it destroys Now the woman gets sick Its down through the bone She says where I'm going, I'm going alone C D G (Different timing) Deeper water C D G Deeper water On a distant beach lonely and wild At a later time see a man and a child And the man takes the child up into his arms Takes her over the breakers, to where the water is calm Repeat chords and fade. And that's it :), I hope someone will enjoy this.
