Shenandoah Lyrics

Oh, Shenandoah, I long to see you
Way hey, you rolling river
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.
For seven years I courted Nancy
Way hey, you rolling river
No other girl would suit my fancy

She would not have me for her lover
Way hey, you rolling river
But I never courted any other
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.

One day she went to Kansas City
Way hey, you rolling river
And there she had a little baby
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.

She must have had another lover
Way hey, you rolling river
It must have been that cavalry soldier
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.

Oh Shenandoah, I loved your daughter
Way hey, you rolling river
Though she'll never cross your shining water
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.
