"The Water Is Wide" as written by and Herb Pederson Chris Hillman....

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 kind
Shines like a jewel
When first it's new
But love grows cold
And love grows old
And lights my life
Like the morning dew

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
