Here is the melody, in close to its simplest form (chords shown above):

  Dm      C         Dm                 F      C         Dm   C   Dm

[Verse 1]

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


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

(chorus chords)

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

(chorus chords)

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

(chorus chords)

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

(chorus chords)

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

(chorus chords)

Fly around, my pretty little miss
Fly around, my Daisy
Fly around, my pretty little miss
Nearly drive me crazy

The lyrics are, "Shady Grove, my little love" rather than "true love"
