Lyrics

The Water is Wide Traditional

The water is wide I can't cross o'er
And neither I have wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And boat shall row my love and I

I leaned my back against the oak
Thinking that he was a mighty tree
But first he bent and then he broke
And thus did my false love and I

Well love is handsome
And love is kind
And loves a jewel when first it's new
But love grows old sometimes waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship and she sails the sea
Sailing a s deep
As deep can be
But not so deeps this love I'm in
I know not how I sink or swim

The water is wide
I can't cross over
And neither I have wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And boat shall row
My love and I

And boat shall row
My love and I
