Oh, Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, you rolling river.
Oh, Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, I'm bound to go,
'cross the wide Missouri.

'Tis seven long years
Since last I saw you.
Away you rolling river,
'Tis seven long years
Since last I saw you.
Away, I'm bound to go
'Cross the wide Missouri.

Oh Shenandoah,
I'm bound to leave you.
Away you rolling river,
Oh Shenandoah,
I'll not deceive you.
Away, I'm bound to go
'Cross the wide Missouri.
