Doc Watson – Shady Grove lyrics
[Chorus:]

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm bound to go away

Cheeks as red a a blooming rose
And eyes are the prettiest brown
She's the darling of my heart
Sweetest girl in towm

[Chorus:]
(break)

I wish I had a big fine horse
And corn to feed him on
And Shady Grove to stay at home
And feed him while I'm gone

[Chorus:]
(break)

Went to see my Shady Grove
She was standing in the door
Her shoes and stockin's in her hand
And her little bare feet on the floor

[Chorus:]
(break)

When I was a little boy
I wanted a Barlow knife
And now I want little Shady Grove
To say she'll be my wife

[Chorus:]
(break)

A kiss form pretty little Shady Grove
Is sweet as brandy wine
And ther ain't no girl in this old world
That's's prettier than mine

[Chorus:]
