Gm F Peaches in the summer time Gm Gm Apples in the fall— Bb F If I don’t get the one I want Gm I don’t want none at all Chorus:
Shady Grove, my true love Shady Grove my darlin! Shady Grove, my true love I’m going back to Harlan
Every night when I get home My wife, I try to please her The more I try, the worse she gets Damned if I don’t leave her
First time I saw Shady Grove She was standing in the door Shoes and stockings in her hand And her little bare feet on the floor.
When I was a little boy I wanted a barlow knife— Now I want little Shady Grove To say she’ll be my wife
Wish I had a needle and a thread Fine as I could sew: I’d sew that pretty girl to my side And down the road we’d go.
Wish I had a banjo string Made of golden twine: Every tune I played on it I’d wish that gal were mine.
