This was recorded at Western Michigan University around the Spring of 1980. Me and my friends would play in the dorm's coffee house. If you listen close, you can hear the stereo blasting from a dorm down the hall; such was our "studio". This piece's arrangement is based on the Karla Bonoff version with James Taylor backing. I think Kathy does an acceptionally sweet job of singing, don't you (Kathleen Wayne, aka Kathleen Sundquist)? Enjoy!
Update!!! Please go see the wonderful animated version of our recording by abukhatar at:
He did such a great job bringing a new vision to this song! I am very thankful for his efforts.
Lyrics: ~~~ The water is wide, I can-not cross o'er. And neither have I wings to fly. Give me a boat that can carry two, And both shall row, my love and I. O love is gentle and love is kind The sweetest flower When first it is new When love grows old and waxes cold And fades away like the morning dew. There is a ship and she sails a sea. She's loaded deep as deep can be But not as deep as the love I'm in And I know not how I sink or swim.
