Oh Shenandoah I long to see you away you rolling river
Shenandoah I long to see you away I'm bound to way across the wide Missouri
Oh Shenandoah I love your daughter away you rolling river
Shenandoah I'll cross your waters away I'm bound to way across the wide Missouri
Cross the wide Missouri
[ harmonica ]
(Oh Shenandoah I'm gonna leave you away you rolling river
Oh Shenandoah I long to see you away I'm bound to way across the wide Missouri
Cross the wide Missouri)

Farewell my love I'm gonna leave you away you rolling river
Shenandoah I not deceive you away I'm bound to way across the wide Missouri
Cross the wide Missouri
