Lyrics

The Water is Wide

The water is wide I cannot cross over
Neither have I the wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

There is a ship and she sails the sea
She's floated deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a trusty tree
But first it bent, and then it broke
Just as my love proved false to me

Oh love is gentle and love is kind
Just like a flower when first it's new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the summer dew

The water is wide I cannot cross over
Neither have I the wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I
