Bring me a boat to cross to my dear
I stand here alone, with my sweetheart so near
Bring me a boat to cross o'er Tyne
For it's deep murky waters part his heart and mine

And the Tyne, it flows on and out to sea
If a boat I'm granted, then safe let me be
And gently I'll go, for gently I'll row
As gently you breathe as you ebb and you flow

Does he know I stand each day on the shore
Does he know I'd give all to see him once more
Does he know I've wept ten thousand times o're
And is he still waiting as he was before?


The boatman, he wants the gold I can't give
My parents are poor, so I've nothing to give
Only my heart and that will not float
So please, don't deny me and bring me a boat
