The Water Is Wide
Schots, arr. James Taylor


The water is wide
I can't cross over
And neither have
I wings to fly
Build 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 loaded deep
As deep can be
But not so deep
As the love I'm in
I know not how
I sink or swim

Oh love is handsome
And love is fine
The sweetest flower
When first it's new
But love grows old
And waxes cold
And fades away
Like summer dew

break (als 1e vier regels couplet)

Build me a boat
That can carry two
And both shall row
My love and I row
My love and I
