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 little girl in town.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

A kiss form pretty little Shady Grove
is sweet as brandy wine,
and there ain't no girl in this old world
that's prettier than mine.

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