O Shenandoah / Sail Away - Jane Siberry

from Gift: A Jane Siberry Sampler

O Shenandoah / Sail Away

Sail away, sail on out
Cross the wide Missouri

O Shenandoah I long to see you
Far away you rollin' river
O Shenandoah I long to see you
Away I'm bound away 'cross the wide Missouri

Sail away, sail on out
'Cross the wide Missouri
O Shenandoah I am a rover
Far away you rollin' river
A-searchin' for the greenest clover
Away I'm bound away 'cross the wide Missouri

So it's fare thee well, my love
I'm bound to leave you
Far away you rollin' river
But Shenandoah I'll ne'er deceive you
Tho' away I'm bound away 'cross the wide Missouri

O Shenandoah I love your waters
Far away you rollin' river
O Shenandoah I long to see you
Away I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri

Sail away, sail on out
'Cross the wide Missouri
