Traditional as performed by Ian Campbell
  1. I cannot get tae my love if I would dee
    For the waters of Tyne run between him and me
    And here I maun stand wi a tear in my ee
    All sighin and sobbin, my true love to see
  2. Oh where is the boatman, my bonny hinney
    Oh where is the boatman, go bring him to me
    For to ferry me over the Tyne to my honey
    Or speed him across the rough waters to me
  3. Oh bring me a boatman, I'll gi all my money
    And you for your trouble rewarded shall be
    If you'll carry me over the Tyne to my honey
    And I will remember the boatman and thee
  4. I cannot get tae my love if I would dee
    For the waters of Tyne run between him and me
    And here I maun stand wi a tear in my ee
    All sighin and sobbin, my true love to see
