"Shady Grove" is a traditional Appalachian folk song, common in the repertoire of bluegrass and old-time musicians of the Cumberlands. Sung by both traditional folk musicians and folk revival musicians, it is sometimes identified as a courting song.

Shady Grove

Well, coffee grows on white oak trees,
The river flows with brandy,
The rocks on the hills are covered with gold,
and the girls are sweeter than candy

Refrain:
Shady Grove my little miss,
Shady Grove my darlin',
Shady Grove my little miss,
I'm going back to Harlan

I guess you think, my pretty little miss,
I can’t live without you.
I’ll let you know before I go
I care but a little about you

Well, every time I go that road,
It's always dark and cloudy,
Every time I see that girl,
I always tell her howdy
