The Water is Wide

Scottisch Folk Song

This song describes love’s journey. Initially love is higher than high, deeper than deep, but then love grows old and cold „and fades away like morning dew“. (arr.: Sybolt de Jong)

Scottisch / English Folk Song

The water is wide, I cannot cross o'er.
And neither have I the wings to fly.
Build me a boat that can carry two,
And 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.

O love is handsome and love is fine,
Bright as a jewel when first it's new;
But love grows old and waxes cold,
And fades away like the morning dew.
