เนื้อเพลง The Water Is Wide

The Water Is Wide - Carolyn Hester

The water is wide I cannot cross over

 

And neither have I wings to fly

 

Give me a boat that can carry two

 

And both shall row my love and I

 

There's a ship and she sails the sea

 

She's loaded deep as deep can be

 

But not so deep

As the love I'm in

 

I know not how

 

I sink or swim

 

I leaned my back

Against some young oak

 

Thinkin' that he was

A trusty tree

 

But first he bended

And then he broke

 

And thus did my

 

False love to me

 

Oh love is handsome

And love is kind

 

Gay as a jewl

 

When first it's new

 

But love grows old

And waxes cold

 

And fades away

Like summer dew

 

The water is wide I cannot cross over

 

And neither have I wings to fly

 

Give me a boat that can carry two

 

And both shall row my love and I
