Shenandoah: This probably originated as a river shanty in the original 1800s. It was popular first among sailors, and then spread from there, up and down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. We don’t know for sure what it’s original meaning was. Some say it was about a traveling man in love with an Indian chiefs daughter, telling the chief he intends to take her with him to the west. Others interpret it as a pioneer’s longing for his home in the Shenandoah River Valley of Virginia. Whatever it’s original intent, it has a beautiful melody. Around a camp fire, it can be an effective song, if you want a subdued, soft mood. Otherwise, you probably should sing something else.
