cd imgDOWN IN THE GROOVE

  Down In The Groove session, Sunset Sound Studios, Hollywood CA - 16.jun.1987  

Shenandoah i long to hear you
Look away you rollin' river
Shenandoah i long to hear you
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.

Now the Missouri is a mighty river
Look away you rollin' river
Indians camp along her border
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.

Well a white man loved an indian maiden
Look away you rollin' river
With motions his cause was laden
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.

Oh Shenandoah i love your daughter
Look away you rollin' river
It was for her that i crossed the water
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.

For seven long years i courted Sally
Look away you rollin' river
Seven more years i longed to have her
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.

Well it's fare thee well, my dear, i'm bound to leave you
Look away you rollin' river
Shenandoah i will not deceive you
Look away we're bound away across the wild Missouri.  up
