Shady Grove

Dm Peaches in the C summertime,
Dm Apples in the fall,
F If I can’t get the C girl I love,
Dm Won’t have C none at Dm all.
Dm Shady grove, C my true love,
Dm Shady grove, I know,
F Shady grove, C my true love,
I’m Dm bound for the C shady Dm grove.

 

Peaches in the summertime,
Apples in the fall,
If I can’t get the girl I love,
Won’t have none at all.
Shady grove, my true love,
Shady grove, my true love,
I’m bound for the shady grove.

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 true love,
Shady grove, I know,
Shady grove, my true love,
I’m bound for the shady grove.

Wish I had a needle and thread
Fine as I could sew
I’d sew that pretty girl to my side
And down the road I’d go
Shady grove, my true love,
Shady grove, I know,
Shady grove, my true love,
I’m bound for the shady grove.

Some come here to fiddle and dance
Some come here to tarry
Some come here to fiddle and dance
I come here to marry
Shady grove, my true love,
Shady grove, I know,
Shady grove, my true love,
I’m bound for the shady grove.

Every night when I go home
My wife, I try to please her
The more I try, the worse she gets
Damned if I don’t leave her
Shady grove, my true love,
Shady grove, I know,
Shady grove, my true love,
I’m bound for the shady grove.

Fly around, my pretty little miss
Fly around, my Daisy
Fly around, my pretty little miss
Nearly drive me crazy
