The Water is Wide

...................
The water is wide
Traditional Irish song.

The  water is wide I cannot get over
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I.

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a trusty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me.

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 if I sink or swim

Oh love is handsome and love is blind
Gay as a jewel when first it's new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew.
