Intro

Dm

DmPeaches in the sCummertime, DmApples iCn the Dmfall, If I can't get the Cgirl I love, AmWon't have none at Dmall.

Chorus

DmShady grove, mCy true love, DmShady gCrove, I Dmknow, Shady grove, Cmy true love, I'm Ambound for the shady Dmgrove. Once I was a little boy, Playin' in the sand, Now I am a great big boy, I think myself a man,

Chorus

When I was a little boy, I wanted a whittlin' knife; Now I am a great big boy And I want a little wife.

Chorus

Wish I had a banjo string, Made of golden twine, And every tune I'd pick on it Is "I wish that girl were mine."

Chorus

Some come here to fiddle and dance, Some come here to tarry, Some come here to fiddle and dance, I come here to marry.

Chorus

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.

Chorus 2

Shady grove, my little love, Shady grove, my darlin', Shady grove, my little love, I'm going back to Harlan. Fly around, my blue-eyed girl, Fly around, my daisy, Fly around, my blue-eyed girl, Nearly drive me crazy.

Chorus 2

The very next time I go that road And it don't look so dark and grazy, The very next time I come that road I'll stop and see my daisy.

Chorus 2
