I. Well love is ...etc... Verse: The water is wide, I can't cross over And neither have I wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I. Well 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 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. Repeat first verse. Melody (no timing implied):
