Indigo Girls Water Is Wide Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2006 11:00:00 AM

Traditional

The water is wide I can't cross 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 handsome love is fine
Gay as a jewel when first it's new
And love grows old and ever bold
And shines as bright as morning dew

A ship there is 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

The water is wide I can't cross o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
