Subject: RE: Origins: Neath the Crust of the Old Apple Pie
Thanks for the suggestions.
Well, we know it was written 1905 or later because that's when "SotOAT" was first written.
It took me some time to puzzle out what "SotOAT" meant until I thought of posting the same information that "In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree" was composed in 1905. Dah!
Evidently the Campfire Girls also got hold of this ditty.
