unknown - The Water Is Wide lyrics

The water is wide i can not cross over
Nor have i wings in witch to fly
So give me a boat that can carry two
We both shall row my friend and i

Now love is gentle love is kind
The sweetest flower when first its new
But love grows cold and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship she sails the sea
Shes loaded deep as deep as can be
But not as deep as the love im in
I know not how i sink or swim

The water is wide i can not cross over
Nor have i wings with witch to fly
so give me a boat that can carry two
we both shall row my friend and i
we both shall row - my friend and i

The water is wide
Original lyrics

The water is wide. i can not get over
And neither have i wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row my love and i

I leaned my back up against an oak
I thought it was a trusty tree
But first it swayed and then it broke
And so my false love did unto me

Oh love is handsome and love is kind
And love's a jewel when it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew
Morning dew
Morning dew
Like morning dew
