THE WATER IS WIDE

The Water is Wide (Traditional) - Video by Thierry Boucher - The Water is Wide is a traditional Scottish folk tune that dates back to the early 1600s. Its writer is unknown but the modern English lyrics (well “modern” as in 1906 😉) were collected from previous versions most likely in southern England 🇬🇧and published by Cecil Sharp. Due to the age of the song, the original lyrics have been mixed with newer versions and/or changed completely but the overarching theme mostly remains: the fragility of love.
