Thread Name: Water Is Wide - First American Version
Subject: RE: Water Is Wide - First American Version
Jane Gentry was my great grandmother and it has been interesting to me to find her in this thread. I've heard The Water is Wide but had no idea that Grandma had part of it in her repertoire. I have the book Jane Gentry, A Singer Among Singers and indeed her version is in the list of tunes attributed to her. I know Grandma also did know a lot of hymns and childrens' tunes. I believe her favorite hymn was Will There Be Any Stars In My Crown.
