OLD APPLE TREE
(Jack Scholl)

Oh, the old apple tree in the orchard
Lives in my memory
It reminds me of my pappy
He was handsome, young and happy
When he planted the old apple tree.

Then one day pappy took Mrs. Norton
Out on a jamboree
When he brought her home at sunup
Mr. Norton raised his gun up
And he chase pappy up in the tree.

When the neighbors came after poor pappy
Up in the tree was he.
So they took a rope and strung him
By the neck until they hung him
By the branch of the old apple tree.

Chorus:

Say goodbye (echo)
Say goodbye (echo)
Say goodbye to the old apple tree
Put the apples in a basket
Cut the tree down for a casket
Cause he died on the old apple tree.

Say goodbye (echo)
Say goodbye (echo)
Say goodbye to the old apple tree
If poor pappy had'a knowed it
He surely wouldn't growed it
Cause he died on the old apple tree.

Written for movie: Swing your Lady, 1938
