Oh Shenandoah,

I long to hear you.

Away, away, you rolling river!

Oh Shenandoah,

I long to hear you.

Away, I’m bound away

'cross the wide Missouri.

 

Oh Shenandoah,

I love your daughter.

Away, you rolling river!

For her I'd cross,

I’d cross your rolling waters.

Away, I'm bound away

'cross the wide Missouri.

 

Instrumental 

For seven years,

I’ve been a rover.

Away, you rolling river!

When I return, I’ll be,

I’ll be your lover.

Away, I’m bound away

'cross the wide Missouri.

Oh Shenandoah,

I’m bound to leave you.

Away, you rolling river!

Oh Shenandoah,

I’ll not deceive you.

Away, I’m bound away

'cross the wide Missouri.

Away, I’m bound away

'cross the wide Missouri.

Shenandoah
