Crossing the Water

牋牋牋牋牋?Words & Music ?1980 Joanne Davis

牋牋牋牋牋?

牋牋牋牋牋?Joanne wrote this song at the Pinewoods Camp's Folk Music week.?She first performed it there with cello, concertina and harp.?I've accompanied it in various ways; here, with twelve-string and Quasi Modals.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?I have seen you leave the shore at sunrise

牋牋牋牋牋?I have felt your oars as they glide

牋牋牋牋牋?I have poured you honey from the morning sun

牋牋牋牋牋?Heard you call to the other side.

牋牋牋牋牋?I have carried your voice along the wind

牋牋牋牋牋?I have tumbled it on the tide

牋牋牋牋牋?I have lifted it as its sound grew dim, swallowed it as it died.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?You may row the boat forever, believing you are free

牋牋牋牋牋?You cannot cross the water, you can only row to me.

牋牋牋牋牋?

牋牋牋牋牋?I have see you pause at midday

牋牋牋牋牋?Your hands all tired and sore

牋牋牋牋牋?I have heard you curse yourself for a fool

牋牋牋牋牋?That you had not progressed more.

牋牋牋牋牋?And I've hear you curse the water for keeping you from the land

牋牋牋牋牋?Even as you reached for me to cool your weary hand.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?You may row the boat forever, there is nowhere I won't be

牋牋牋牋牋?You cannot cross the water, you can only row to me.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?I have seen you in the sunset with a compass in your hand

牋牋牋牋牋?I have felt you change direction trying to reach the land.

牋牋牋牋牋?And I've seen you looking homeward

牋牋牋牋牋?Ah, but sailor this water is wide

牋牋牋牋牋?If you knew my voice would tell you, lay the oars aside.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?For you'll turn the boat forever, there is nowhere I won't be.

牋牋牋牋牋?You cannot cross the water, you can only row to me.

 

牋牋牋牋牋?You may row the boat forever, there is nowhere I won't be.

牋牋牋牋牋?You cannot cross the water, you can only row to me.
