bill Lyr Req: Help! Version of Water Is Wide (23) Lyr Add: THE RIVER IS WIDE (from Kingston Trio) 22 Nov 99


The river is wide, I cannot see.
Nor do I have light wing to fly.
Build me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row, my love and I.

My love is like the lofty tree,
It shudders fierce and then sways free.
If it should fade when the summer's through,
She'll bloom again when the spring shines through.

When love is young, then love is fine;
Just like a gem when first it's new;
But love grows old and waxes cold;
And fades away like the morning dew.

The river is wide, I cannot see;
Nor do I have light wings to fly.
Build me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row my love and I.

If you need the music the Kingston Trio recorded this song on their Make Way album.
