shenandoah lyrics – 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
