Lyrics for the late night - Shenandoah
Shenandoah
Bob Dylan also did a version of this song

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

1. A beautiful melody
Brings back memories of my Gramma.
