Song: The Water is Wide

The Water is Wide

The water is wide, I cannot cross over
But neither have I 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's new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know now how I sing or swim
