"The Water Is Wide" (also called "O Waly, Waly") is a folk song of Scottish origin, based on lyrics that partly date to the 1600s.Here is an arrangement for classical guitar and melody line for sing along.1.The water is wide, I can't cross over, and neither have I wings to fly. Build me a boat, that will carry two, and both shall row, my love and I. 2.There is a ship, and she sails the sea. She's loaded deep, as deep can be, But not so deep, as the love I'm in, I know not how, I sink or swim. 3. Oh love is handsome, and love is fine, the sweetest flower, when first it's new, But love grows old, and waxes cold, and fades away, like summer dew. Build me a boat that can carry two, and both shall row, my love and I, And both shall row, my love and I.
