This article is about the American folk song.
"Oh Shenandoah" (also called simply "Shenandoah", or "Across the Wide Missouri") is a traditional American folk song of uncertain origin, dating at least to the early 19th century.
The song may possibly have originated with Canadian and American voyageurs traveling down the Missouri River. The song has developed several different sets of lyrics; some early lyrics by 1910 seem to tell the story of a trader who fell in love with the daughter of the Oneida Iroquois chief Oskanondonha (1710 - 1816), called Shenandoah. The song, of whatever origin and in whatever form, appears to have been spread by American riverboatmen. Whatever its origin or form, by the mid 1800s versions of the song had become a sea shanty heard or sung by sailors in various parts of the world.
Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter,
Away you rolling river,
I'll take her 'cross your rollin' water,
Away, I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.. Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
How often at night, when the heavens are bright|
With the light from the glittering stars
I've stood there amazed, and asked, as I gazed,
If their glory exceeds that of ours.
The air is so pure, and the zephyrs so free
And the breezes so balmy and light
I would not exchange my home on the range
For all the cities so bright.
