One of America’s best loved songs began asa sea shanty. The Shenandoah spoken ofin the song is not about a place, but is about an Indian chief living along theMissouri River.

 Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hearyou,
Away you rollingriver,
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hearyou,
Away, I’m boundaway
‘Cross the wide Missouri

Oh Shenandoah,
I love yourdaughter,
Away, I’m boundaway
‘Cross the wide Missouri.
