J. Shirl/E. M. Drake

My lady love, she stands a-waitin' far across the wide Missouri. On the banks I hear her callin' to me.

Chorus:
A-roll, a-roll a-ree, across the wide Missouri. (Repeat line)

For seven years I've been a-roamin'. Seven years I left the valley. Now I live just for my true love to see.

[Chorus:]

I'm pushing on when dawn's a-breakin', goin' 'cross the wide Missouri where my love, she stands a-waitin' for me.

A roll, (a-roll a-ree), a roll a-ree, across the wide Missouri. (Repeat)
