Lyrics

8. Shenandoah

19th century American Sea shanty arr. Chris Rowberry

 

Oh Shenandoah I long to hear you

Wey hey you rolling river

Oh Shenandoah I long to hear you

Away, we’re bound away

‘Cross the wide Missouri.

 

Missouri she’s a mighty river. Wey hey,….

When she rolls down, her topsails shiver

Away, we’re bound away……

 

‘Tis 7 long years since I last saw you. Wey hey..

‘Tis 7 long years since I last saw you.

Away, I’m bound away……

 

Farewell, goodbye, I shall not grieve you. Wey..

Oh Shenandoah, I’ll not deceive you

Away, we’re bound away…
