[Additional Verses]

[Verse]

Dm           C
Wish I had a glass of wine
    Dm
And bread and meat for two
    F               C
I'd set it out on a golden plate
C                      Dm
And I'd give it all to you

[Verse]

Dm             C
Peaches in the summertime 
Dm
Apples in the fall
   F                   C
If I can't have little Shady Grove
C                      Dm
I don't want no gal at all

[Verse]

Dm         C
If I had a needle and thread
   Dm
As fine as I can sew
    F                  C
I'd sew my pretty girl to my side
C                    Dm
And down the road we go
