SHADY GROVE

Red Fox jump into my path, shining in the sun,
Then he gave me a little laugh, flipped his tail and run.

Blackbird drinking in the water grass, twinkle in her eye.
Feathers shine all purple and green, then away she flies.

Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, I say,
Shady Grove, my little love, I'll be back someday.

Looking for the one I love, could that one be you?
Looking for the one I love, one who loves me true.

Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, my darling,
Shady Grove, my little love, you're the one I'm calling.

Do not touch the columbine, just leave it in the sun.
It'll fade right in your hand, now see what you have done.

Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, my darling,
Shady Grove, my little love, you're the one I'm calling.

Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, I say,
Shady Grove, my little love, I'll see you some day.
