A Shendandoah Lullaby

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Recorded by Jerry Garcia with David Grisman for "Not For Kids Only" but seemingly never played live. Played once by the Grateful Dead as a jam coming out of "Space" on 20 June 1992.

Oh Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away you rolling river
Oh Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri

The trader loved this Indian maiden
Away you rolling river
With notions his, canoe was laden
Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri

0h Shenandoah, I love your daughter
Away you rolling river
For I've crossed the rolling water
Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri

0h Shenandoah, I'm bound to leave you
Away you rolling river
0 Shenandoah, I'll not deceive you
Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri

Oh Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away you rolling river
Oh Shenandoah, I long to hear you
Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri
