Deeper Water

Paul Kelly, Randy Jacobs / Paul Kelly: Deeper Water (1995)

|: G C/G D G :|
G C/G D G
On a crowded beach, in a distant time,
C/G D G
At the height of summer, see a boy of five,
C/G D G
At the waters edge, so nimble and free,
C/G D G C/G D G
Jumpin over the ripples, lookin' way at the 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. 
C/G D G C/G D G
Deeper Water, - Deeper Water,
C/G D G C/G D G
Deeper Water, - It's Calling him on.
Electric
|: G C/G D G :| (4x)
Let's move forward now and the child's seventeen, 
With a girl in the back seat tugging at his jeans. 
She knows what she wants, she guides with her hand, 
As a voice cries inside him: I'm a man, I'm a man! 
Deeper Water, - Deeper Water, 
Deeper Water, - It's Calling him on. 
Solo 1
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. 
(Deeper Water, Deeper Water.) 
Now the years hurry by, and the woman loves the man. 
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. 
Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) - Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) 
Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) - It's Calling him on. 
Solo 2
acoustic:
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." 
all
(Deeper Water, 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. 
Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) - Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) 
Deeper Water, (Deeper Water) - Deeper Water... (Deeper Water)
