Jean Ritchie/Lee Hays Chorus: Shady Grove, my little love, Shady Grove, I know. Shady Grove, my little love, bound for Shady Grove. (Last time: Bound for Shady Grove. (Right on over to Lonesome Traveler) Lips as red as the bloomin' rose, eyes of the deepest brown, You are the darlin' of my heart stay 'til the sun goes down. (Chorus) I went to see my Shady Grove standin' by the door, shoes and stockings in her hand little bare feet on the floor. (Chorus) I wish'd I had a big fat horse, corn to feed him on, pretty little girl to stay at home, you feed him when I'm gone. (Chorus) Well, (Yeah, yeah, yeah) I am a lonely and a lonesome traveler (Repeat twice) I've been a-travelin' on. I traveled in the mountains and in the valleys, (Repeat twice) Well, I've been a-travelin' on. I traveled cold and then I traveled hungry, well (Repeat twice) I've been a-travelin' on. Hey, one of these days I'm gonna stop all my travelin', well (Repeat twice) Stop all this travelin' on. I'm gonna keep right on a-travelin' on that road to freedom (Repeat twice) Well, I've been a-travelin' on.
