"Across the Wide Missouri" as written by and Jimmy Shirl Ervin Drake....
My lady love, she stands a'waitin'
Far across the wide Missouri
On the banks I hear her callin' to me

A-roll, a-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri
A-roll, a-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri

For seven years I've been a-roamin'
Seven years I left the valley
Now I live just for my true love to see

A-roll, a-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri
A-roll, a-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri

I'm pushin' on when dawn's a-breakin'
Goin' 'cross the wide Missouri
Where my love, she stands a-waitin' for me

A-roll (a-rollaree)
A-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri
A-roll (a-rollaree)
A-rollaree
Across the wide Missouri
