Subject: HELP! Version of WATER IS WIDE
Hi everyone. My parents used to sing an incredibly beautiful version of this song. The first few lines were:

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.

Then they proceeded into verses that I cannot seem to find ANYWHERE.
Does anyone have a clue?
