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.
