      About "The Water Is Wide"

      Lyrics for James Taylor - "The Water Is Wide"

      The water is wide,
      I can't cross over,
      And neither have I wings to fly.
      Build me a boat
      That can carry two
      And both shall row, my 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 know not how I sink or swim.

      Oh love is handsome
      And love is fine,
      The sweetest flower
      When first it's new.
      But love grows old
      And waxes cold
      And fades away like Summer dew.

      Build me a boat
      That can carry two
      And both shall row, my love and I,
      And both shall row, my love and I.
