SHENANDOAH Songtext

O Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Away, you rolling river
O Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Away I´m bound to go ´cross the wide Missouri

O Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away, you rolling river
O Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away I´m bound to go ´cross the wide Missouri

O Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away, you rolling river
O Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away I´m bound to go ´cross the wide Missouri

Also known as Across the Wide Missouri, this song dates from the 1820s and was orginally a sea chanty -- a work song sung by sailors in which a chorus alternates with a lead singer. Sea chanties were at their height in the mid to late 1800s, and declined with the replacement of packet and clipper ships by steam vessels at the close of the 19th century. Legend had it that Africans, the Welsh, and the Irish were the deep seas´ best shantymen
