Correct Lyrics for "Shady Grove", Lucy's Lyrics, and "Simple Gifts"

Shady Grove
Cheeks as red as the blooming rose, eyes of the deepest brown,
You are the darling of my heart, stay 'til the sun goes down.

Shady Grove (unison)

Shady Grove, my little love, standin' in the door,
shoes and stockings in her hand and her little bare feet on the floor.


Body percussion-->key change

Wisht I had a big fine horse, corn to feed him on
pretty little girl to stay at home, feed him when I'm gone.


Sail away, Ladies (with Lucy's Lyrics)
Ain't no use sit 'n cry  Sail Away, Ladies, sail away
You'll be an angel by and by

Don't you rock ‘em diedy-o

I got a home in Tennessee
That's the place I wanna be

Ms. Mobley takes a solo

Come along boys and go with me
We’ll go down to Tennessee

Hush little baby don’t you cry
You’ll be an angel by and by

Ms. Mobley takes a solo

Spilled your milk and made a mess
big wet spot on your blue dress

You fell down and scraped your knee
clumsiest girl in history.

Simple Gifts (listening)
