Lyrics

Shenandoah

Oh, Shenandoah, I long to see you
Way hey, you rolling river
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away, I'm bound away across the wide Missouri.

For seven years I courted Nancy
No other girl would suit my fancy

She would not have me for her lover
But I never courted any other

One day she went to Kansas City
And there she had a little baby

She must have had another lover
It must have been that cavalry soldier

Oh Shenandoah, I loved your daughter
Though she'll never cross your shining water
