Deeper Water - Paul Kelly
Tabbed by Bj Grace - bjthedj85 at

C  	 D  G

 	 C 	  	 D 	 G
On a crowded beach, in a distant time

 	 C 	  	        D     G
At the height of summer, see a boy of 5

 	 C 	  	 D 	   G
At the waters edge, so nimble and free

   	 C 	  	  	 D 	    G
Jumpin over the ripples, lookin way out to sea

Now a man comes up from amongst the throng
Takes the young boys hand and his hand is strong
And the child feels safe, yeah the child feels brave
As he's carried in those arms up and over the waves

Let's move forward now and the child's seventeen
With a girl in the back seat tugging at his jeans
And she knows what she wants, she guides with her hand
As a voice cries inside him I'm a man I'm a man!

Now the man meets a woman unlike all the rest
He doesn't know it yet but he's out of his depth
And he thinks he can run it's a matter of pride
But he keeps coming back like a cork on the tide

Well the years hurry by and the woman loves the man
Then one night in the dark she grabs hold of his hand
Says there can you feel it kicking inside
And the man gets a shiver right up and down his spine


So the clock moves around and the child is a joy
But death doesn't care just who it destroys
Now the woman gets sick thins down to the bone
She says where I'm going next I'm going alone

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
