Shenandoah Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

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
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

Look away, we're bound away
Look away, we're bound away
Look away, we're bound away
...
