Shenandoah

Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you

Look away, you rollin' river

Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you

Look away. We're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.

Now the Missouri is a mighty river

Look away, you rollin' river.

Indians camp along her border

Look away. We're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.

Well a white man loved an Indian maiden

Look away, you rollin' river

With notions his canoe was laden

Look away, we're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.

Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter

Look away, you rollin' river

It was for her I'd cross the water.

Look away, we're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.

For seven long years I courted Sally

Look away, you rollin' river

Seven more years I longed to have her

Look away, we're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.

Well, it's fare-thee-well, my dear,

I'm bound to leave you

Look away you rollin' river

Shenandoah, I will not deceive you

Look away, we're bound away

Across the wide Missouri

.
