    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.

    Way', you rolling river.

    For her I cross your roaming waters.

    Way', I'm bound away.

    Cross the wide Missouri.

    Tis' seven long years since last I've seen you.

    And heard your rolling rivers.

    Tis' seven long years since last I've seen you.

    Way', I'm bound away…

    Cross the Wide Missouri

    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.

  65. Cassandra Forste says:

    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 !

  66. carty43 says:

    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.

  67. Chris Alvey says:

    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!

  70. bburnsga says:

    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.

    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?

  81. Veni Vidi Amavi says:

    I see those Japanese subtitles

  82. Edward Gilmour says:

    Outstanding version

  83. dpmltm says:

    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!

  84. Collaboarator LLC says:

    Transposed it here!

  85. TheConfidentialEnderman says:
