Beyond this maze of city streets
Beyond those painted faces
There's a road that leads to cool green fields
& girls who're dressed in laces
Everyone has a front porch swing
Every house a parlor
When the float is dry, watch me thirst
There's more than just spring water

CHORUS:
Shady Grove, my little miss
Shady Grove, my darlin'
Shady Grove, my little miss
Come with me to Harlan

Just sittin' here & the mornin' sun
Looks like glittering fire
She's long, she's lean, she won't run
She fills me with desire
Kentucky, I could go back in
From a bed of yellow daisies
The sun is warm & her kiss is hot
She's known to drive me crazy

(chorus x3
