"Shady Grove" as written by and Doc Watson....

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

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


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


Went tpo see my Shady Grove
Standing in the door
Her shoes and stockin's in her hand
And her little bare feet on the door


When I was a little boy
I wanted a Barlow knife
Now I want little Shady Grove
To say she'll be my wife
