The Water is Wide (大河之水) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

The water is wide I cannot get over

 

Neither have I wings to fly

Give me a boat that can carry two

And both shall cross my true love and I

 

I leaned my back against an oak

 

Thinking it was a mighty tree

But first it bent and then it broke

 

So did my love prove false to me

 

I put my hand in some soft bush

 

Thinking the sweetest flower to find

I pricked my finger to the bone

 

And left the sweetest flower behind

 

Oh love is handsome and love is kind

 

Gay as a jewel when it is new

Oh when it is new

But love grows old and waxes cold

 

And fades away like morning dew

 

The water is wide I cannot get over

 

Neither have I wings to fly

Give me a boat that can carry two

And both shall cross my true love and I
