Something for the weekend.  The haunting American folk song Shenandoah.  The above version is by Tennessee Ernie Ford.

Here is a fine violin version by the Irish group Celtic Woman:

Finally, Haley Westenra, a New Zealand songstress, gives a powerful performance of the song:

Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away you rolling river
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to see you,
Away, I’m bound away
‘cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I love your daughter
Away, you rolling river.
For her I’d cross,
Your roaming waters.
Away, I’m bound away,
‘Cross the wide Missouri.
‘Tis seven years since last I’ve seen you,
And hear your rolling river,
‘Tis seven years since last I’ve seen you,
Away, we’re bound away
Across the wide Missouri.
