The Water Is Wide. Trad.

Chorus.

The water is wide, I can’t cross over

Neither have I wings to fly

Give me a boat  that can carry two

And both shall row, my love and I 

A ship there is and she sails the sea

She’s loaded deep as deep can be

But not so deep as the love I’m in

I know not if I sink or swim

The Water is wide I cannot cross over 

Neither have I the wings to fly

Give me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row my love and I

Oh love be handsome and love be kind

the sweetest flower when first it is new

But love grows old and waxes cold

And fades away like the morning dew

The Water is wide I cannot cross over 

Neither have I the wings to fly

Give me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row my love and I
