Water is Wide

I love this version of “Water is Wide” with the Indigo Girls, Jewel and Sarah Mclachlan from Lilith Fair. The words to this beautiful song can be found below.

The Water is Wide

Chorus:
The water is wide
I can’t cross o’er.
And neither I
Have wings to fly.
Give me a boat
That can carry two.
And both shall row
My love and I.

Verse 1:
My love is gentle
And love is kind.
The sweetest flower
When first it blooms.
But love grows old
And waxes cold
And fades away
Like morning dew.

Verse 2:
There is a ship
That sails the sea.
She’s loaded deep
As deep can be.
But not as deep
As the love I made
I know not how
To sink or swim.

Chorus:
The water is wide
I can’t cross over.
And neither I
Have wings to fly.
Give me a boat
That can carry two.
And both shall row
My love and I.
And both shall row
My love and I.
