BmBm chord       GG chord
Don’t you know the world is water?
               AA chord
You can’t just float on it.
      BB chord
Can’t skim it,
          GG chord
Afraid to swim it.
        AA chord          EE chord       AA chord
No, you can’t just stay on land.

                   BB chord          GG chord
Somehow, you gotta break that water,
         AA chord
Kick and pull through it.
    BB chord
You cross each length
     GG chord
With stride and strength,
    BB chord
You pace the course
     GG chord
With even force,
     AA chord       EE chord        AA chord
Your hand in front of hand,


You go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

You go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord       DD chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.
                  BB chord        GG chord 
So meet me at the touch of water—
              AA chord         DD chord
And take some laps with me.
     BB chord          
Some free, some test,
         GG chord
With our back and breast,
      BB chord      
We’ll keep our style
            GG chord
Through the millionth mile,
              BmBm chord        EE chord      AA chord
And when it’s more than we can stand,


We’ll go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

We’ll go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.
           CC chord     GG chord        AA chord
Let others walk around an ocean,
           CC chord      GG chord       DD chord
Let others try to build a Bridge across.
                   BbBb chord   DD chord   BbBb chord   DD chord
But you and me, we fall in, fall in,
      FF chord          DD chord
Never sure we’ll survive.
          GG chord            DD chord
But we’ll find out how deep,
          GG chord            
Learn the secrets they keep
       DD chord               GG chord
At the bottom where we arrive.

           EmEm chord
Now, let’s jump.

Let’s jump!
            GG chord
We’ll never know we’re alive
                       AA chord
‘Till we jump, till we dive…!


And we go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke!

Yeah, we go
BmBm chord                  GG chord                   AA chord
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke
     CC chord  GG chord  DD chord
By stro-oh-oke!

                  BmBm chord       EmEm chord     GG chord
So meet me at the touch of water—
             AA chord
And take the swim with me…

  1. Oh my god, there’s actually a Jasper in Deadland song on here. This is amazing, I don’t even see stuff for this anywhere else.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
