Mizzoury
Traditional - same tune as Shenandoah

For seven long years I courted Nancy
Hi-Yo, I courted Nancy
For seven long years I courted Nancy
Hi-Yo, I’m bound away for the wild Mizzourye

She would not have me for a lover
Hi-You, have for a lover
She would not have me for a lover
Hi-You, she took all of my fifteen dollars

And then she went to Kansas City
Hi-Yo, to Kansas City
Hi-Yo, she went to Kansas City
Hi-Yo, she must have had another lover

He must have been another soldier
Hi-Yo, another soldier
Hi-Yo, have been another soldier
Hi-Yo, I’m drinking rum, chewing bacco

I learned this song from Tommy Thompson
Hi-Yo, from Tommy Thompson
Hi-Yo, I learned this song from Tommy Thompson
Hi-Yo, I’m bound away for the wide Mizzoury
