Shenandoah
The Chieftains Lyrics


Oh, Shenandoah
I long to see you
Away you rolling river
Oh Shenandoah
I long to see you
Away, I'm bound away
'cross the wide Missouri
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

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

Oh Shenandoah
It's far I wander
Away you rolling river

Oh Shenandoah
It's far I wander
Away, I'm bound to roam
'Cross the wide Missouri

Shenandoah
Though I love your daughters
Away you rolling river

Oh Shenandoah
I love your daughter
And I know I'm going away
'Cross the wide, wide Missouri

Oh Shenandoah



I long to see you
Away you rolling river

Oh Shenandoah
I long to see you
And I'm bound, oh, I'm bound to
Cross the wide, wide Missouri

Shenandoah
Oh, I love you, darling
Away you rolling river

Oh Shenandoah
I love your daughter
But when I'm bound to go
'Cross the wide Missouri

A Remarkable song alright, clearly the best version ever

A beautiful number by our Irish Rover. It brings tears to my eyes as most of the Rover has is to make it something of a balladeer. The old boy is getting up in years but his voice NEVER shows it.
