MY MOTHER'S UNCLE TAUGHT HER THIS SONG WHICH WAS SUNG ON BACK
PORCHES OR AT SOCIALS IN THE EVENINGS AFTER ALL THE CHORES WERE
DONE.
"THERE'S AN OLD APPLE TREE IN THE ORCHARD
THAT LIVES IN MY MEMORY
IT WAS PLANTED BY MY PAPPY--HE WAS HANDSOME, YOUNG AND HAPPY
WHEN HE PLANTED THE OLD APPLE TREE.
ONE NIGHT PAPPY TOOK SISTER NORTON OUT ON A JAMBOREE
WHEN THEY GOT BACK AT SUN-UP, BROTHER NORTON RAISED HIS GUN
UP
AND HE CHASED PAPPY OUT IN THE TREE.
WHEN THE NEIGHBORS CAME AFTER MY PAPPY
UP IN THE TREE WAS HE
THEY TOOK A ROPE AND STRUNG HIM BY THE NECK AND THEY HUNG
HIM ON A BRANCH OF THE OLD APPLE TREE.
SAY GOOD-BYE, SAY GOOD-BYE, SAY GOOD-BYE TO THE OLD APPLE
TREE
IF MY PAPPY HAD A KNOWED IT, HE'D BE SORRY THAT HE GROWED IT
CAUSE HE DIED ON THE OLD APPLE TREE."
