The Water Is Wide Lyrics

The Water Is Wide - The Seekers

The water is wide I can't 'cross o'er

 

Nor do I have light wings to fly

 

Build me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row my love and I

 

A ship there is and sails the sea

 

She's loaded deep as deep can be

 

But not so deep as the love I'm in

 

And I know not how

 

I sink or swim

 

When love is young and love is fine

 

It's like a gen

 

When first it's new

 

But love grows old and waxes cold

 

And fades away

 

Like the morning dew

 

The water is wide I can't 'cross o'er

 

Nor do I have light wings to fly

Build me a boat that can carry two

And both shall row my love and I
