I came across this song in the Digitrad search, but what I'm after is the nostalgic Irish air given to it by Sam Henry. All help greatly appreciated!

THE RIPEST OF APPLES

O, the ripest of apples, they must soon grow rotten,
And the warmest of love, it must soon grow cold,
And young men's vows, they must soon be forgotten,
Look out, pretty maiden, that you don't get controlled.

The seas they are deep and I cannot wade them,
Nor have I, nor ever, the wings for to fly.
I would that my love were a jolly boatman
To ferry me over, my love and I.

(repeat first stanza)

From "Sam Henry's Songs of the People"
Other titles: Tarry Trousers, I Drew My Ship Into a Harbour, Love Is Pleasing, Rattle on the Stovepipe

From JFSS #2, 1900

The Ripest of Apples
'Down East' Coast song from the neighbourhood of Portland, Maine.

O the ripest of apples, they must soon grow rotten,
And the warmest of love, it must soon grow cold;
And young men's vows they must soon be forgotten,
Look out pretty maiden, that you don't get controlled.

The seas they are deep,
And I cannot wade them,
Neither have I
The wings to fly.
But I wish I could find
Some jolly, jolly boatsman,
To ferry me over,
My love and I.

O I wish that me
and my love was a sailin'
As far as the eye
Could discern from the shore.
A sailin' so far
Across the blue ocean,
Where no cares nor troubles
Wouldn't bother us no more.

Had to throw this in. Sorry. From Sappho:
Like the reddest, ripest apple on the topmost branch of the tallest tree. The pickers didn't notice her. No, they noticed her but couldn't reach her.
Describing one of her unmarried protegees.
