      About "The Water Is Wide"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "The Water Is Wide"

      The water is wide and I can't cross over
      Neither have I wings that I could fly
      Build me a boat that can carry two
      And both shall row my love and I

      There is a ship and it sails on the sea
      Loaded deep as deep can be
      But not as deep as the love I'm in
      I know not if I sink or swim

      I leaned my back up against an oak
      Thinkin' it was a trusty tree
      But first it bent and then it broke
      Just like my own false love to me

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

      The water is wide and I can't cross over
      Neither have I wings to fly
      Build me a boat that can carry two
      And both shall row my love and I
