"Shenandoah" as written by and Boettcher/neilson/s & D Holmberg....
The Missouri, she's a might riverAway you rolling river
The red man's camp lies on her bordersAway, we're bound away across the wide
Missouri, a white man loved an Indian maidenAway you rolling river
With notions sweet his canoe was ladenAway, we're bound away across the wide

Missouri Shenandoah, I love your daughterAway you rolling river
I'll take her 'cross the rolling waterAway, we're bound away across the wide
Missouri, the chief disdained the trader's dollarsAway you rolling river
My daughter never you shall followAway, we're bound away across the wideMissouri

At last there came a Yankee skipperAway you rolling river
He winked his eye, and he tipped his flipper
Away, we're bound away across the wideMissouriHe sold the chief that fire-water
Away you rolling river and 'cross the river he stole his daughter

Away, we're bound away across the wideMissouriO Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away you rolling riverAcross the wide and rolling water
Away, we're bound away across the wideMissouri
