shady grove

Traditional Appalachian, Vs. 3 (c) Leela & Ellie Grace, by permission


Shady Grove, my little love

Shady Grove I know

Shady Grove, my little love

I’m bound for the Shady Grove


1. Peaches in the summertime

Apples in the fall

If I can’t have the one I love

I won’t have none at all


2. Wish I had a banjo strong

Strung with golden twine

And every time I’d pluck on it

I’d know that you were mine


3. When I go to Shady Grove

I’d like to stay all day

And there beneath the apple trees

I’ll dance my cares away
