[Dm]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]Shady [C]grove, I [Dm]know
[F]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]I'm bound for the [C]shady [Dm]grove.

[Dm]When I was a [C]little boy
[Dm]I wanted a [C]Barlow [Dm]knife
now [F]all I want's little [C]Shady Grove
To [Dm]say she'll [C]be my [Dm]wife

[Dm]Cheeks as red as a [C]blooming rose
And [Dm]eyes the [C]prettiest [Dm]brown
[F]She's the darling [C]of my heart
[Dm]Sweetest little [C]girl in [Dm]town

{c: refrain:}
[Dm]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]Shady [C]grove, my [Dm]darlin',
[F]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]I'm going [C]back to [Dm]Harlan.

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

[Dm]Some come here to [C]fiddle and dance,
[Dm]Some come [C]here to [Dm]tarry,
[F]Some come here to[C] fiddle and dance,
[Dm]I come [C]here to [Dm]marry.

[Dm]Fly around, my [C]brown-eyed girl,
[Dm]Fly a[C]round, my [Dm]daisy,
[F]Fly around, my [C]brown-eyed girl,
[Dm]Nearly [C]drive me [Dm]crazy

{c: refrain:}
[Dm]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]Shady [C]grove, my [Dm]darlin',
[F]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]I'm going [C]back to [Dm]Harlan.

[Dm]Went to see my [C]Shady Grove
She was [Dm]standing in the [C]door
her [F]shoes and stockin's [C]in her hand
her [Dm]bare feet [C]on the [Dm]floor

[Dm]Kiss from pretty little [C]Shady Grove
Is [Dm]sweet as [C]brandy [Dm]wine
And there [F]ain't no girl in [C]all this world
That's [Dm]pretti[C]er than [Dm]mine

{c: refrain:}
[Dm]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]Shady [C]grove, my [Dm]darlin',
[F]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]I'm going [C]back to [Dm]Harlan.

[Dm]Peaches in the [C]summertime,
[Dm]Apples [C]in the [Dm]fall,
If [F]I can't get the [C]girl I love,
[Dm]Won't have [C]none at [Dm]all.

[Dm]Wish I had a [C]needle and thread
[Dm]Fine as [C]I could [Dm]sew
I'd [F]sew that pretty girl [C]to my side
And [Dm]down the [C]road we'd [Dm]go

{c: refrain:}
[Dm]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]Shady [C]grove, my [Dm]darlin',
[F]Shady grove, [C]my true love,
[Dm]I'm going [C]back to [Dm]Harlan.
