Thread Name: The Water is Wide - one more time!
Subject: RE: The Water is Wide
I have nine versions of this song from an instrumental in old English manner by Charlie Byrd to Carolyn Hester to Buffy Sainte-Marie with great jaws harp intro and exit, but not the same song as I can detect, but you in the biz might get the similarities.

Also, the song probably will be on the CD of a local (LA-area) group called Five Wheel Drive who do a beautiful version in person. If they come to your town see them. FWD is country flavored, does a lot of original songs, and is fronted by three of the most gorgeous girl singers...being gorgeous doesn't make them good, but it couldn't hoit either.---John
