Subject: ADD Verse: old apple tree in the orchard
From: murray
Date: 10 Jun 97 - 02:16 AM

I have words & music of this song, "The Old Apple Tree in the Orchard", but am looking for background--where's it from, etc. To remind you, I may as well post the words.

O 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.
[chorus]
Say G'bye, say G'bye,
Say G'bye to the old apple tree
[repeat lines 3-5; this happens with each stanza]

Then one night Pappy took widow Norton
Out on a jamboree
When he brought her home at sun-up
Brother Norton raised his gun up
And he chased Pappy up in the tree.

When the neighbours came after my Pappy
Up in the tree was he
Then they took a rope and strung him
By the neck and then they hung him
From a branch of the old apple tree.

Now my poor Pappy lies in the orchard
Out of his misery
If my Pappy had a' know'd it
He never woulda grow'd it
'Cos he died on the old apple tree.

[Any more verses, by the way??]

OLD APPLE TREE

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.
^^

I'll get the tune sent to Alison later today. This is another I learned from my sister. It's a lot of fun to sing, fairly fast-paced. Didn't find it in teh DT, so hope I am not being redundant.

This one fell by the wayside the other day, due to duplicate SFTD threads, so rather than bring it up with the wrong date and confuse everybody, I am resubmitting it:

The last verse is;

They put the apples in a basket
cut the tree down for a casket
now my poor pappy lies in the tree
          (chorus)
    Say goodbye. Say goodbye
    Say goodbye to the ol' apple tree
    Had my pappy ever know'd it
    He'd a never, never grow'd it
    For he died on the old apple tree.

...learned that from my dad back in the early 40's. It was fun times; all of us singin' that song together. I don't think that happens much anymore.....too bad.   Can you imagine an audience in a movie theater today all singing along to the bouncing ball?!

My grandfather used to sing this song to me when I was a boy. He died today and I can't get the song out of my mind. I was wondering if anyone on here can help me find the author of the song or any information about the song at all. I can be contacted at dennisml@rcn.com thank you.

This is the version I learned from my mother in the 1940s. The differences are few but important, I think. I used to cry every time she sung it because I connected it with my Father being away in the war. It was years before I figured out what Pappy's offense was.

Oh, that 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 that old apple tree

Now one day Pappy took widder Norton
Out on a jamboree
When he brought her home at sunup
Brother Norton took his gun up
And he chased Pappy up in that tree.

When the neighbors came after my Pappy
Up in the tre-ee was he.
They took a rope and then they hung him
By the neck and then they strung him
To a branch of that old apple tree.

Say goodbye, Say goodbye, Say goodbye
to that old apple tree
If my Pappy hadda knowed it,
He'd be sorry that he growed it
For he died with that old apple tree!

Now my Pappy lies out in the orchard
Out of his mi-isery
They put the apples in a basket
Chopped the tree down for a casket
And my poor Pappy died with that tree

Say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye
to that old apple tre-e-e-e
If my Pappy hadda knowed it
He'd be sorry that he growed it
For he died with that old apple tree!

My grandpa use to sing this to my dad, and in turn my dad use to sing this to me. I sing it to my kids when I can remember the words. This and Froggie went a courtin, and there's a whole in the bottom of the sea.

Makes me teary though to finally find all the words to this song. I just wish I could hear someone sing it.
