Shenandoah river

How many songs heve been sung about rivers
Mississippi, Potomac, and Ohio too
Still in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley
The Shenandoah river runs peacefully through

    Deep in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley
    The Shenandoah river flows quiet and serene
    On to the James, then at Norfolk, Varginia
    She floats all her secrets out into the sea

How many heartaches and troubles and sorrow
How many pleasures this river has seen
How many smiles and sadness have lingered
Memories that no one would ever believe

  * Refrain

Horses and buggies, that gasoline engines
Have all rode the crest of her beautiful waves
She's seen loves smile, heard their vows in the moonlight
Free to the thirsty her water she gave
