Oh Shenandoah Lyrics - The Waterboys

Review The Song (1)



Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away, you rollin' river
Oh, Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Look away. We're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Now the Missouri is a mighty river
Look away, you rollin' river.
Indians camp along her border
Look away. We're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Well a white man loved an Indian maiden
Look away, you rollin' river
With notions his canoe was laden
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter
sponsored links
Look away, you rollin' river
It was for her I'd cross the water.
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

For seven long years I courted Sally
Look away, you rollin' river
Seven more years I longed to have her
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

Well, it's fare-thee-well, my dear,
I'm bound to leave you
Look away you rollin' river
Shenandoah, I will not deceive you
Look away, we're bound away
Across the wide Missouri

A beautiful lamentation | Reviewer: David ramsdell | 10/30/2006

As a lifelong resident of the shenandoah valley, through which the river runs, this song has always filled my heart with pride and has brought a tear into my eye on more than one occasion. I can understand the deep emotional connection that the writer of this song so beautifully expresses through the lamentation of having to leave it. It's always been on my top ten list of patriotic songs and is a heart felt expression be american ideals.
