The Water Is Wide

This song is by Eva Cassidy and appears on the album Imagine (2002) and on the album American Tune (2003).

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

O love is handsomeand love is fine
And love's a jewel while its first new
But love grows old, and white's so cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship, its sailing the sea
It's loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep as my love for him
I know not if I sink or swim

The water is wide
I cannot get o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row my love and I

And both shall row my love and I
