See this thread for a lengthy and inconclusive discussion on the history of this song. Hey--it's a folk song!

I looked up this thread two weeks ago and after reading it came to the conclusion that you can know TOO MUCH about a folk song! ;-) I'll be singing it for a church service and I just hope I don't break into the X-rated version.

Yes, Dbtila3457 (can I call you Db for short?) we have lyrics. Lots of 'em! Simply enter the word Shenandoah into the box at the top right of the screen and the song will appear. This also works for words which are specific to a particular song, such as "ghost" which will bring up a number of candidates which contain that word. Short phrases such as "be careful how you court your men" would have similar results. Try it. it is great! We hope you will stick around long enough for you to get to know us and vice versa. Welcome!

According to Captian whall, who compiled one of the earlest and best shantey collections, he says it may be a voyageur ( missouri river boatman's song).The main life of the song was lived under sail in the days of squarerigged ships, when the men were leaning hard on the capstan bars and tramping the anchor up from the bottom. This is one of our finest regaldless of the version you sing. According to my book words and melody addapted by John and Allan Lomax. No date. It is a true folk song. bet

To answer your question and to paraphrase the earlier threads this song appeared in print around 1910 with variants reported back around 1880.
