The Water Is Wide / Deep River
Barbra Streisand

The Water Is Wide / Deep River

The water is wide
I cannot 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
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
Deep river
My home is over jordan
Deep river
Lord
I want to cross over into campground
Deep river
My home is over jordan
Mmm, deep river, lord
I want to cross over into campground
Oh don't you want to go
To that gospel feast
That promised land
Where all is peace
For deep river, lord
I want to cross over into campground
The water is wide
I cannot cross over
And neither have
I wings to fly
Build me aboat
That will carry two
And both shall row
And both shall row
And both shall row
My love and I.
