The water is wide

I cannot swim ore

and neither have I

the wings to fly

give me a boat

that can carry two

and we both shall row

my true love and I



A ship there is

and she sails the seas

she's laden deep

as deep can be

but not so deep

as the love I'm in

and I know not if

i sink or swim



I leaned my back

against a young oak

thinkin he was

a trusty tree

but first he bended

and then he broke

thus did my love

prove false to me



Oh love is handsome

and love is kind

bright as a jewl

when first it's new

but love grows old

and waxes cold

and fades away

like the morning dew



and fades away

like the morning dew
