As recorded by THE SEEKERS: The water is wide, I can't cross o'er Nor do I have light wings to fly Build me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I A ship there is and sails the sea She's loaded deep as deep can be But not so deep as the love I'm in And I do not know I sink or swim (Instrumental Break) When love is young and love is kind It's like a gem when first it's new But love grows old and waxes cold And fades away like the morning dew The water is wide, I can't cross o'er Nor do I have light wings to fly Build me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I ******************** As recorded by KARLA BONOFF: The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither have I wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I Oh, love is gentle and love is kind The sweetest flower when first it's new But love grows old and waxes cold And fades away like mornin' dew (Instrumental Break) There is a ship and she sails the sea She's loaded deep as deep can be But not as deep as the love I'm in I know not how I sink or swim The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither have I 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 ******************** As recorded by FRED NEIL: The water's wide and I cannot cross over Nor do I have wings to fly Build me a boat that could carry two And both shall row, my love and I There is a ship and she sails the sea She's burdened deep as deep can be But not as deep as the love I'm in And I know not if I sink or swim But love is gentle and love is kind As to a jewel when first it's new But love grows old and it fades with time And it fades away like the morning dew Build me a boat that could carry two And both shall row, my love and I My love and I My love and I ******************** As recorded by CHLOE AGNEW: The water is wide, I cannot get o'er And neither have I wings to fly Build me a boat that will carry two And both shall row, my love and I When love is planted, oh, there it grows It grows and blossoms like a rose It has a sweet and pleasant smell No flower on Earth can it excel A ship there is 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 if I sink or swim For love is handsome and love is fine And love's a jewel while it is new But when it's old, it grows so cold And fades away like morning dew (Transcriptions by Mel Priddle - January 2014)
