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

2  Oh Shenandoah,
I love your daughter,
Away, you rolling river.
For her I'd cross,
Your roaming waters,
Away, I'm bound away,
'Cross the wide Missouri.

 

3  'Tis seven years,
since last I've seen you,
And hear your rolling river.
'Tis seven long years,
since last I've seen you,
Away, we're bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.

4  Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
And hear your rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away, we're bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.
