Subject: RE: Help: Found lyrics need artist - Old Apple Tree
Uncle Dave Macon also recorded a parody of 'In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree' in 1927. Evidently, this same parody was applied to a cajun version 'Under the Old China Tree' recorded by Joe Werner & the Ramblers in the 1930s. Bob Hyland also noted on an Uncle Dave LP sleeve that the song was probably first recorded in parody by Billy Murray on a one-sided Victor disc in the early 1990s.
