The water of Tyne

First line:
I cannot get to my love if I would dee
author of text

The water of Tyne is one of Elizabeth Poston’s lesser known works. Her interest in folk songs is perhaps no surprise given her close musical relationship with Ralph Vaughan Williams and Peter Warlock. In the case of The water of Tyne, the folk song is sung by a girl lamenting the fact that her love is on the opposite bank of the River Tyne.
