Sharp 1914 (John Short) -
O Shanadar I love your daughter,
Hooray you rolling river.
Shanadar I love your daughter
Ha Ha, I’m bound away to the wild Missouri.
O seven years I courted Sally.
And seven more I couldn’t gain her.
She said I was a tarry sailor.
Farewell my dear I’m bound to leave you;
I’m bound away but will ne’er deceive you.
Sharp 1914 (James Thomas) -
Shanadar is a rolling river, E-o, I-o, E-o, I-o.

"Shenandoah, I Love your Daughter"
Shenandoah! I long to hear you—
Hurrah! you rolling river.
Oh, Shenandoah! I long to hear you—
And hurrah! we’re bound away!
On the wide Missouri!
Seven long years since I lost Dinah;
I've searched seven years. I cannot find her.
also, to Rolling River type tune:
Sally Brown's a bright Mulatto,
Oh Sally Brown's a bright Mulatto--
Oh walk along, you Sally Brown.
Shenandoah, I'll ne'er forget you,
Away, ye rolling river,
Till the day I die I'll love you ever,
Ah, ha, we're bound away.
Terry 1920 (1921)-
Oh, Shenandore, I long to hear you
Away you rolling river;
Oh, Shenandore, I long to hear you,
Away I'm bound to go 'cross the wide Missouri.
Heave her up from down below, boys!
Hooray, you rolling river!
Heave her up and let her go, boys!
Aha! Bound away o’er the wild Missouri.
Shenandore, I long to see you! X2
Shenandore! I love your daughter,
I love the roar of your rushing waters,
Carpenter recordings, late 1920s-
Oh Shenandoah, I'm going to leave you
Oh Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Shanadore, I long to hear you
Oh Shanadore, I love your daughter
O if I had a dog I would call him Hunter,
Hooray, my rolling river!
O if I had a dog I would call him Hunter.
I’m bound away on the wild Missouri!
Shanadore, I love your daughter,
Hooway, you rolling river,
Oh, Shanadore, I love your daughter,
Hyah, bound away, To the wild Missouri!
For seven long years I’ve courted your daughter.
Oh, Shanadore, I want to marry.
Shenadore, I love your daughter;
Away you rolling River;
We’re bound for the green fields and the mossy river;
Ah, ha, ha, I’m bound away acrocc the wide Missouri.
