The Water Is Wide

There is a ship
that 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.

The sea is wide
I cannot get over
And neither have
I wings to fly.
Give me a boat
that will carry two
that boat shall row
my love and I.

Traditional / Steeleye Span.
