(Am riff)
Annan water, you loom so deep and wide
I would cross over if you would stem the tide
build a boat that I might ford the other side
reach the farther shore where my true love lies in wait for me
in wait for me, in wait for me
in wait for me, in wait for me

(Am riff)
Oh grey river, your waters ramble wild
the horses shiver and bite against the bridle
but I will cross if mine own horse is pulled from me
though my mother cries that if I try
I sure will drowned be,
will drowned be (x4)


A              D    Dm            A    F#m
    But if you calm    and let me pass
        D           E                  A    A7
you may render me a wraith when I come back
             D     Dm              A (A/G#) F#m
so calm your waves    and slow the churn
            Bm                E           Am
and you may have my precious bones on my return

(Am riff)
Annan Water, oh hear my true love's call
hear her holler above your water's fall
God, that I could, that my two arms could give me wings
And I would cross your breadth and rest my breast
about her amber rings
Her amber rings (x4)

A

A             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  (A/G#)  F#m
so calm your waves    and slow the churn
            Bm               E7              E7       Dm
and you may have my precious bones on my, on my     return
