(Emory Gordy, Jr./Patty Loveless)

Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Goin' back to Harlan

Well the boys all call me "Pretty Little Miss"
It don't ever phase me
But every time he call my name
It nearly drives me crazy

Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Goin' back to Harlan

Mama says he's not my type
He really loves another
But he's gonna marry me
When I turn twelve this summer

Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Goin' back to Harlan

Well, paint and powder, curled my hair
The day he came a callin'
He ran off with my older sis
And I commenced to squallin'

Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Goin' back to Harlan

Oh spring has sprung, summer's gone
Fall is quickly fadin'
Guess I'll spend my winter months
A sad and lonley maiden

Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, pretty little miss
Goin' back to Harlan
