Gibb Sahib Lyr Req: Shenandoah (Fisherman's Friends) (21) RE: Lyr Req: Shanandoah fishermans friends version 07 Oct 17

....continued from last

Dixon 1883 - mentioned above, but can probably be discarded as he was probably copying Alden 1882
For seven long years I courted Sally.
Hurrah, you rollin' river!
I courted Sally down in yon valley
Ah, ha! I'm bound away on the wild Missouri.

New York Times, Jan. 1884 -
Shanadore is my native valley,
Hurrah, rolling river,
Shanadore I love your daughters,
Ah-ha, bound away 'cross the wild Missouri.

For seven long years I courted Sally,
Seven more and I could not get her,

Seven long years I was a 'Frisco trader,
Seven more I was a Texas ranger.

Davis and Tozer 1887 -
"The Wide Missouri"i
Oh, Polly Brown, I love your daughter,
Away my rolling river!
Polly Brown, I love your daughter,
Ah! Ah! we're bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri.

Oh, twenty years I courted Sally,
Yo ho, ye rolling river!

Buryeson 1909 -
Shenandoah, I love your waters;
And away, you rolling river
I love your clear and rushing waters
Ah, ah, ah, we’re bound away, across the wide Missouri.

The ship sails free, a gale is blowing;
Her braces taut and sheet a-flowing.

Shenandoah, I love to hear you;
Shenandoah, I long to see you. etc

Whall 1910/1913/1920-
Missouri she’s a mighty river.
Away you rolling river.
The redskins’ camp lie on its borders.
Ah-ha I’m bound away ‘cross the wide Missouri.

Bullen 1914 -
Shanandoh, I long ter hear ye;
A way, you rolling river;
Oh Shanandoh I can’t get near ye
Ha ha! I’m bound away on the wide Missouri!
