Shady Grove
Shady Grove by Doc Watson arranged by Mary Beth Cross


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

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

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm bound to go away
(break)
I wish I had a banjo string
Made of golden twine
Every tune I’d play on it
I wish that girl were mine

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm bound to go away
(Break)
When I was a little boy
I wanted a Barlow knife
now I want little hady Grove
To say she'll be my wife

Peaches in the summertime
Apples in the fall
If I can’t get the girl I love
I don’t want no one at all

Chorus: repeat x2
