Shady Grove

Shady Grove my little love Shady Grove I’d say
Shady Grove my little love I’m bound to go away

Apples in the winter time peaches in the fall
if I can’t get the girl I want I’ll want no one at all
cheeks as red as blooming rose eyes of the prettiest brown
she is the darling of my heart sweetest little girl in town

Shady Grove my little love . . .

I wish I had a glass of wine and bread and meat for two
I’d put it out on a golden plate and give them all to you
I wish I had a big strong horse and corn to feed him on
Shady Grove stay at my home oh feed him when I’m gone

Shady Grove my little love . . .

I went to see my little Shady Grove she was standing by the door
shoes and stockings in her hand little bare foot on the floor
a kiss from my little Shady Grove as sweet as brandy wine
there ain’t no girl in this whole world that’s sweeter than mine

Shady Grove my little love . . .

I looked up and I looked down looking dark and hazy
and every time I saw her tracks don’t you know it drove me crazy
oh when I was a young man wanted to roam all night
but now I want little Shady Grove to say she will be my wife

Shady Grove my little love . . .
