Thread Name: Lyr Req: Woman whose body parts are removed
Subject: Lyr Add: IN THE SHADE OF THE OLD APPLE TREE(parody
Wasn't that "In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree"?

As Ramblin' Jack sings it,

"Her glass eye and false teeth were on the mantle
And on the bed, she hung her locks of hair
And there was only one thing that filled my heart with sadness:
She pitched her wooden leg upon the chair...
And it was a limb from that old apple tree (etc.)"

Or does that come from something else originally?
