Shady Grove

Misc. Traditional

 DmC
 Peaches in the summertime,
 DmCDm
 Apples in the fall,
 C
If I can't get the girl I love,
 AmDm
 Won't have none at all.

Chorus:

 DmC
 Shady grove, my true love,
 DmCDm
 Shady grove, I know,
 C
Shady grove, my true love,
 AmDm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

Once I was a little boy,
Playin' in the sand,
Now I am a great big boy,
I think myself a man,

Chorus

When I was a little boy,
I wanted a whittlin' knife;
Now I am a great big boy
And I want a little wife.

Chorus

Wish I had a banjo string,
Made of golden twine,
And every tune I'd pick on it
Is "I wish that girl were mine."

Chorus

Some come here to fiddle and dance,
Some come here to tarry,
Some come here to fiddle and dance,
I come here to marry.

Chorus

Every night when I go home,
My wife, I try to please her,
The more I try, the worse she gets,
Damned if I don't leave her.

Chorus 2:
Shady grove, my little love,
Shady grove, my darlin',
Shady grove, my little love,
I'm going back to Harlan.

Fly around, my blue-eyed girl,
Fly around, my daisy,
Fly around, my blue-eyed girl,
Nearly drive me crazy.

Chorus 2

The very next time I go that road
And it don't look so dark and grazy,
The very next time I come that road
I'll stop and see my daisy.

Chorus 2
