LYRICS

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
