  • Lyrics: The water is wide, I can't get over Neither have I the wings to fly Oh, go and get me a little boat And we both shall row, my true 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 care not if I sink or swim I leaned my back against an oak Thinking she was a trusty tree But first she bent and then she broke And so my love proved false to me I put my hand in a rosey bush Thinking a sweetest flower to find I pricked my finger to the bone And left the sweetest flower behind Oh love is warm when it is new And love is sweet when it is true But love grows old and washes cold And fades away like morning dew
