Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away, you rollin' river
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away. We're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Now the Missouri is a mighty river
Look away, you rollin' river.
Indians camp along her border
Look away. We're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Well a white man loved an Indian maiden
Look away, you rollin' river
With notions his canoe was laden
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Look away, you rollin' river
It was for her I'd cross the water.
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

For seven long years I courted Sally
Look away, you rollin' river
Seven more years I longed to have her
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Well, it's fare-thee-well, my dear,
I'm bound to leave you
Look away you rollin' river
Shenandoah, I will not deceive you
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Away, you rolling river,
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Away, I'm bound away,
across the wide Missouri.

Shenandoah, I love your daughter,
Away, you rolling river,
It's been seven long years since I saw her…

Shenandoah, I took a notion
Away, you rolling river,
To sail across the stormy ocean…

The missouri she's a mighty river
Away, you rolling river,
When she rolls down her topsails quiver…

Shenandoah, I'm bound to leave you
Away, you rolling river,
Oh shenandoah, I'll not deceive you…

Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Away, you rolling river,
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you…
