"Shady Grove" is an Appalachian folk song that bears some resemblance to the English ballad "Matty Groves." Although its verses have hundreds of variations, its origin is most likely as a courting song:

Cheeks as red as a blooming rose,
Eyes of the prettiest brown,
She's the darling of my heart,
The sweetest girl in town.
