Shady Grove

This song is by Jerry Garcia & David Grisman and appears on the album Shady Grove (1996).

Peaches in the summertime
Apples in the fall
If I can't have the girl I love
I don't want none at all

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

I wish I had a banjo string
Made of golden twine
Every tune I'd play on it
I wish that girl was mine

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

I wish I had a needle and thread
Fine as I could sew
Sew that pretty girl to my side
And down the road I'd go

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

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

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Every night when I go home
Wife, I try to please her
The more I try, the worse she gets
Damned if I don't leave her

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, my darlin'
Shady grove, my little love
I'm goin' back to Berlin

Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for Shady Grove
