The Wide Missouri

The Wide Missouri

Traditional - Lyrics from Iron Men & Wooden Ships, by Frank Shay


Oh, Shenandoah, I love your daughter,
Away, my rolling river!
I'll take her 'cross yon rolling water.
Ah! ha! We're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.


Oh, Shenandoah, she took my fancy,
Away, my rolling river!
Oh, Shenandoah, I love your Nancy.
Ah! ha! We're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.


Oh, Shenandoah, I'll ne'er forget you,
Away, my rolling river!
Till the day I die, I'll love you ever.
Ah! ha! We're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.
