Kingston Trio – Shady Grove / Lonesome Traveler lyrics

(Jean Ritchie/Lee Hays)

[Chorus:]
Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, I know. Shady Grove, my little love, bound for Shady Grove. (Last time: Bound for Shady Grove. (Right on over to Lonesome Traveler)

Lips as red as the bloomin' rose, eyes of the deepest brown, You are the darlin' of my heart stay 'til the sun goes down.

[Chorus:]

I went to see my Shady Grove standin' by the door, shoes and stockings in her hand little bare feet on the floor.

[Chorus:]

I wish'd I had a big fat horse, corn to feed him on, pretty little girl to stay at home, you feed him when I'm gone.

[Chorus:]

Well, (Yeah, yeah, yeah) I am a lonely and a lonesome traveler [Repeat 2x]
I've been a-travelin' on.

I traveled in the mountains and in the valleys, [Repeat 2x]
Well, I've been a-travelin' on.

I traveled cold and then I traveled hungry, well [Repeat 2x]
I've been a-travelin' on.

Hey, one of these days I'm gonna stop all my travelin', well [Repeat 2x]
Stop all this travelin' on.

I'm gonna keep right on a-travelin' on that road to freedom [Repeat 2x]
Well, I've been a-travelin' on.
