[Intro]
Dm

[Chorus]
Dm            C     G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 1]
Dm             C     G
Peaches in the summertime,
Dm     C      Dm
Apples in the fall,
                   C    G
If I can't get the girl I love,
Am                 Dm
Won't have none at all.

[Chorus]
Dm            C     G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 2]
Dm              C    G
Wish I had a banjo string
Dm       C    Dm
Made of golden twine
                   C
Every tune I'd play on it
Am                 Dm
I wish that girl were mine

[Chorus]
Dm             C     G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 3]
Dm            C       G
Wish I had a needle and thread
Dm     C       Dm
Fine as I could sew
             C
I'd sew that pretty girl to my side
    Am                  Dm
And down the road I'd go

[Chorus]
Dm            C      G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 4]
Dm                 C       G
Some come here to fiddle and dance
Dm     C       Dm
Some come here to tarry
             C
Some come here to fiddle and dance
    Am                  Dm
I come here to marry

[Chorus]
Dm            C     G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 5]
Dm            C      G
Every night when I go home
Dm     C       Dm
My wife, I try to please her
             C
The more I try, the worse she gets
    Am                  Dm
Damned if I don't leave her

[Chorus]
Dm            C     G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.

[Verse 6]
Dm            C         G
Fly around, my pretty little miss
Dm     C       Dm
Fly around, my Daisy
             C
Fly around, my pretty little miss
    Am                  Dm
Nearly drive me crazy

[Chorus]
Dm            C      G
Shady grove, my true love,
Dm     C       Dm
Shady grove, I know,
             C
Shady grove, my true love,
    Am                  Dm
I'm bound for the shady grove.
