Lyrics of the first Half
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you!
Way', you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you.
Way', I'm bound away.
Cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter.
For her I cross your roaming waters.
Tis' seven long years since last I've seen you.
And heard your rolling rivers.
Way', I'm bound away…
Cross the Wide Missouri
How about an album all for American patriotic songs? That will be great!
In what key signature is the first part in then the key change?
I heard this song by a large choir sometime when I was a teen and ever since the hook has been stuck in my head, but I've never found a version that's moved me as much.
Until tonight. Tears immediately spring from my eyes and my heart aches with how beautiful this is. Thank you, Peter.
Blessed with a lovely voice ❤️
Peter Hollens, my school Alexander Hamilton 5th grade band is playing the melody of Shenandoah. We all saw this video. Do you have. Any tips I can share to them all?
In what language are the lyrics written?
A zene nagyon tetszik az anyukámnak és nekem
I know its probably corny, but I"d love to hear you tackle the ballad of Davy Crockett and the theme to Daniel Boone, of Fes Parker's stuff.
My school just put on the play Mourning becomes electra and this song is the main theme
I’ve got this as my trumpet solo and it’s so litt
you can reach all my feelings.. thank you for this <3
I need to sing this for my consert
For my all state chorus audition I have to sing this beautiful song
I took this song as a solo to a high school contest and got a 1. Absolutely love this song.
One of the most beautiful songs ever. Thank you, Peter!
Some time ago I wanted to hear this song, so I searched it and saw this and wondered who this Peter Hollens guy was. This is one of the most beautiful performances of this song I have ever heard. Now I'm hooked on everything on your channel. 🙂
OMG!!😂 I grew up with this song!! Brings back so many wonderful memories! THANK YOU FOR BRING THIS BACK!!💖💖💗💗
God I love his voice.
This is about the daughter of an Indian chief in New York state. A fur trader travelled the Missouri and longed for his love. Shenandoah.
That voice, it goes just as deep as the Dovahkins. Godly is all I have to describe. Just gorgeous. I also LOVE the setting, mellow, dark, rainy, snowy, riverside….. Yes…
in virginia, people play this song for every school event under the sun. we play the frank ticheli version on our instruments at graduation every year ~
Please sing: Still be my vision
Fantastic song and singer! Thank you for this incredibly long and intense "moment frisson" from 1:49 to 2:20 !!!!
I remember singing a solo for this song in elementary school, and honestly, every time I hear this song, I'm drawn to the brink of tears. It's such a fantastic song!
Lovely voice. beautiful song. heard it after I heard my little grandson singing.
I love the snow falling!😱👏🏻👍🏻💚😘👍🏻🙌🏻
Haven’t heard this song in years. absolutely positively brilliant rendition of a classic song
DUDE! You're awesome. Beautiful voice, creative interpretations/musicality, so silky smooth it gives me goose bumps. Thank you for sharing your music with us. It makes my soul want to sing and brings joy.
Wow voice of an angel! Im here from Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon's "Almost Heaven" after googling Shenandoah.
I'm a choir member and is tasked with singing this In the bass(lower)version
Love this song!
You should sing for the longest time
Nice job man!
instant feeling, any Chinese songs can't compare with this video version.清新脱俗 美得不得了
I love your songs
Peter would enjoy hearing this from MY generation: 1975, by Starland Vocal Band.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzj5LNMPswM
We sang this for my chorus concert and it’s so beautiful that it makes me wanna cry no joke
I don't entirely like the change of lyrics. But this is astoundingly beautiful.
wonderful voice for an amazing melody
I listen to this once a day and perform it once a month…thank you for the blueprint Peter hollins!
Wow! I'm so glad I stumbled upon this. It's right up there with the best of 'em!
I can't say enough how much I have always loved this song
I don't know what can I say. Just love this cover. ❤️
WOW. WOW. WOW !!!
U r awesome
Peter's voice gives me chills on this song – one of my favorites!
Peter, ich werde eines Tages not rich singen. Ist das moeglich. Deine Stimme… ausgezeichnet! Ich danke for.
Chills my friend. You hit that out of the park!
❤️ WOW…Haven't heard this since…forever…I'm in my 50's and haven't heard it since I was still at home!
Thank you for sharing your music. You make my heart light.
I was mowing the lawn to this yesterday, and I decided to belt it, and I hit all the notes, and then later I came into the house and my sisters looked at me like I was insane.
The most beautiful song and done so well! Thank you, Peter!
Lovely, so relaxing👍💖💖
i am doing this for my grade 4 singing exam peter!
I don't understand why so many ppl didn't like it.. 😏 He did very well and no reason to give this a thumbs down !
This was always my favorite version. Never understood why you re-did it. One of these days, for a cool change of pace, I wish you'd take a run at "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive." Quite a slice of Americana, that one.
My high school choir teacher had us sing this song and I absolutely fell in love with it. You do an amazing job singing it and I’m sure he’d probably listen to this over and over if he was still with us. Well done, Peter!
I am from from Virginia and this song calls me home one more time.
Beautiful is all I can say beautiful voice and song
I watch & listen to this often, I have the link on my desktop. When it gets to 2:16, the wet snow, his expressions, arm movements, & the words really get to me. He's so believable. I miss living out west, now that I'm back in the southeast. This song takes me back. Just a wonderful performance, an amazing voice.
what a beautiful voice .
You have a beautiful sound
I've watched this like literally a hundred times, and I'm still struck by the beauty of it all.
Easily my favorite of your covers, Peter. It's just straight up heartfelt and powerful. Love your layering for the musical melody and harmonies. Absolutely magical.
I have always loved this song, well done! Thank you.🎶💚🎶💙🎶💜
My choir sang this and i absolutely love this song ❤️
Takes me back to high school! We sang this song in Show Choir. Love your version. Amazing.
This was my Granddad's favorite folk song.
I am a new grandmother. This song/Peter's voice work magic on my five-month-old grandson. Whether teething or hungry, if I play Shenandoah, he becomes calm and smiling immediately. I am forever grateful! Maybe a lullaby or two next?
I see those Japanese subtitles
This song lacks a real Southern Accent to push it above the line. I had relatives fight on both sides and something like this it just needs that little extra push. Oh it is so close to perfection!
Transposed it here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXG2UjT6lgY&feature=youtu.be
I have to do this for a university choir audition tomorrow. Can always count on Peter Hollens for a good recording.
I love this!
When i was a freshman we did this song for veterans day, i just think its cool to hear my favorite acapalaist sing my favorite choir song
that violin voice effect……awesome. greetings from mexico peter…. soul touching voice
You're a snake!
All-State contestants where you at?!
Oh. Oh, it hurts so sweetly, I can't explain. This song, and your voice, will be my touchstone.
THE PEDAL! OMG DADDY 😍😍
The moment Peter was in 20s. Lovely!
As Fan of irish and scotish Music I just can say Thank you for this wonderful version! Please, make more!
Oh my god, his voice is so clear and beautiful. Our a cappella group is also practicing this beautiful song currently, I hope I will sing as good as him one day!
my very favorite
