The Water is Wide

The water is wide, I cannot get o'er

and neither have I wings to fly

Give 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 laden deep, as deep can be

But not as deep as the love I'm in

I know not if I sink or swim

I lean'd 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

O love is warm and love is kind

and like a jewel when it is true

But love grows old and waxes cold

And fades away like the morning dew
