Thread Name: Help: The Old Apple Tree - artist wanted
Subject: John Wayne fan needed
The lyrics nowon77 posted are just slightly different from those in the Digital Tradition. I found the same lyrics here (click) - maybe that Webmaster knows something about the song? His/her acknowledgement refers to "The Quiet Man" (Republic Pictures, 1952), so I guess it made the movies. Anybody know of a recording? Gee, do ya think John Wayne sang it in the movie?
So, Nowon77, will you volunteer to rent the John Wayne "Quiet Man" movie and see if he sings your version of the song?
