Karla Bonoff - The Water Is Wide Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • The water is wide
  • I cannot swim ore
  • and neither have I
  • the wings to fly
  • give me a boat
  • that can carry two
  • and we both shall row
  • my true love and I
  • A ship there is
  • and she sails the seas
  • she's laden deep
  • as deep can be
  • but not so deep
  • as the love I'm in
  • and I know not if
  • i sink or swim
  • I leaned my back
  • against a young oak
  • thinkin he was
  • a trusty tree
  • but first he bended
  • and then he broke
  • thus did my love
  • prove false to me
  • Oh love is handsome
  • and love is kind
  • bright as a jewl
  • when first it's new
  • but love grows old
  • and waxes cold
  • and fades away
  • like the morning dew
  • and fades away
  • like the morning dew
