This song is sung by Karla Bonoff,,,James Taylor sings a small
part.

The water is wide
I can't cross over
And neither have
I wings to fly
Build me a boat
That can carry two
And both shall row
My love and I


Oh 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
And 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 over
And neither have
I wings to fly
Build me a boat
That can carry two
And both shall row
My love and I


And both shall row
My love and I
