SHENANDOAH (Traditional American Sea Shanty, circa 1825) Oh, Shenandoah's my native valley. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah is my native valley. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah, it's far I wander. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah, it's far I wander. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah has rushing waters. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah has rushing waters. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah, I love your daughters. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah, I love your daughters. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah, I long to see you. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah, I long to see you. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah, I'm boun' t' leave you. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah, I'm boun' t' leave you. Ah-way, we're bound to go, 'cross th' wide Missouri! Oh, Shenandoah, I'll never grieve you. Aa-way, you rolling river! Shenandoah, I'll never grieve you.
