Lyrics

This version is from the "Pizza Tapes" of Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and Tony Rice

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

(Chorus)
Shady grove, my little love
Shady grove, I know
Shady grove, my little love
I'm bound for shady grove


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


3) 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


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


5) 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

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