Bm       G
Don’t you know the world is water?
               A
You can’t just float on it.
      B
Can’t skim it,
          G
Afraid to swim it.
        A          E       A
No, you can’t just stay on land.

                   B          G
Somehow, you gotta break that water,
         A
Kick and pull through it.
    B
You cross each length
     G
With stride and strength,
    B
You pace the course
     G
With even force,
     A       E        A
Your hand in front of hand,


You go
Bm                  G                   A
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

You go
Bm                  G                   A       D
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.
                  B        G 
So meet me at the touch of water—
              A         D
And take some laps with me.
     B          
Some free, some test,
         G
With our back and breast,
      B      
We’ll keep our style
            G
Through the millionth mile,
              Bm        E      A
And when it’s more than we can stand,


We’ll go
Bm                  G                   A
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.

We’ll go
Bm                  G                   A
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke.
           C     G        A
Let others walk around an ocean,
           C      G       D
Let others try to build a Bridge across.
                   Bb   D   Bb   D
But you and me, we fall in, fall in,
      F          D
Never sure we’ll survive.
          G            D
But we’ll find out how deep,
          G            
Learn the secrets they keep
       D               G
At the bottom where we arrive.

           Em
Now, let’s jump.

Let’s jump!
            G
We’ll never know we’re alive
                       A
‘Till we jump, till we dive…!


And we go
Bm                  G                   A
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke!

Yeah, we go
Bm                  G                   A
Stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke by stroke
     C  G  D
By stro-oh-oke!

                  Bm       Em     G
So meet me at the touch of water—
             A
And take the swim with me…
