"Shady Grove" as written by and J. J. Cale....
Peaches in the summer time
Apples in the fall
If I can't have shady grove
I'll have no one at all
Shady Grove my litttle love
Shady Grove I know
Shady Grove my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Now the first time I saw Shady Grove
She was standing in the door
Had her shoes and stockings in her hand
Little bare feet on the floor
Shady Grove my little love
Shady Grove I know
Shady Grove my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Her cheeks as red as a bloomin rose
Eyes of the prettiest brown
Your the darlin of my heart
Stay till the sun goes down
Shady Grove my little love
Shady Grove I know
Shady Grove my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Well I wish I had a big gray mare
Corn to feed him on
Little Shady Grove stay at home
Feed him while I'm gone
Shady Grove my little love
Shady Grove I know
Shady Grove my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Kiss from pretty Shady Grove
Sweet as cherry wine
And theres not a girl in this whole world
Prettier than mine
Shady Grove my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove my little love
Can't wait till the judgement day
