Shenandoah






Shenandoah

Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Way hey, you rolling river.
Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Ha ha, we're bound away 'cross the wide Missouri.

Oh, Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Wey hey, you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter
ha ha, we're bound away 'cross the wide Missouri

Missouri she's a mighty river...
When she rolls down, her topsails shiver...

Seven years, I courted Sally...
Seven more, I longed to have her...

Farewell, my dear, I'm bound to leave you...
Oh, Shenandoah, I'll not deceive you...
