Indigo GirlsWater Is Wide

The Water is Wide" is a traditional folk song. The girls have been performing it now and then for years and years. I've been lucky enough to see Mary-Chapin Carpenter add a beautiful third part to the harmony on a few occasions. The Water is Wide. The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither I have wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row - my love and I Now love is gentle, and love is kind The sweetest flower when first it's new But love grows old, and waxes cold And fades away like morning dew There is a ship, she sails the sea She's loaded deep as deep can be But not as deep as the love I'm in I know not how I sink or swim The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither I have wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row - my love and I And both shall row - my love and I
