Shady Grove lyrics

Cheeks as red as the blooming rose
Eyes of the deepest brown
You are the darling of my heart
Stay till she sun goes down

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove, my dear
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm going to leave you here

Shady Grove my little love
Standin' in the door
Shose and stockin's in her hand
And her little bare feet on the floor

Wish I had a big, fine horse
Corn to feed fim on
Pretty little girl stay at home
Feed him when I'm gone

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove, I say
Shady Grove, my little love
Don't wait till Judgment Day
