about

THE WATER IS WIDE
Traditional

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

Love is gentle and love is kind
The sweetest flower when first it blooms
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship and it sails the sea
It's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I don't know how I sink or swim
