Walie Walie
   ------Joan Baez

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 cross
My (true) love and I

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

I put my hand
In some soft bush
Thinking the sweetest flower to find
I pricked my finger to the bone
And left the sweetest flower behind

Oh, love is handsome and love is kind
Gay as a jewel when it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

The water is wide
I cannot get o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall cross
My true love and I
