The Water Is Wide - Eva Cassidy

A tale unfolds of lovers true

Who met to cross a river blue

And heaven watched and heaven sighed

As once more couple there did meet

An ageless custom to repeat


To test how strong their love might be

They’ll walk to meet their destiny

And heaven’s wish was at their side

He took her hand in peril’s view

A final kiss their love renew


They entered water felt its strain

To try the trust these two maintain

And heaven’s hope now opened wide

As couple progressed cautiously

To press ahead or turn and flee


There in the strength of river’s flow

Where naked truth began to show

And heaven held as love was tried

His hold on love began to wane

Her footing she could not regain


Was there a love which once was sweet

Had met a fate it would not beat

And heaven watched and heaven cried

When finally he let her go

A tale of Joy or one of woe
