The Water Is Wide

The Water’s Wide I can’t cross over, and neither have, I wings to fly
Build 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 loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep and the love I’m in, I know not how I sink or swim
Love is handsome and love is fine, the sweetest flower
When first it’s new, but love grows old and waxes cold, and fades away
Like the morning dew, and fades away like the morning dew
