Subject: Lyr Add: SHADE OF THE OLD APPLE TREE (parody)
From: Gene
Date: 27 May 04 - 01:38 PM

A Local music pal asked me to transfer the contents of some
old homemade Reel-To-Reels jam sessions from many years ago...

Any mudcatter recall this one? could be homespun...

IN THE SHADE OF THAT OLD APPLE TREE

Hey I thought I'd take a bath in the water
Fer a bath I hadn't had in a month or so
Fer the bath I didn't want to spend a quarter
So I went down to the creek where it was low

And I laid my clothes beside an apple tree, there
And then I got in to an awful fix
For and old maid came and sat right down beside me
And right there she stayed from one o'clock till six

In the shade of that old apple tree
In water just up to my knees
And I had to sit down, while she was around
Till only my face she did see

The mosquitoes were bitin' my nose
And the turtles were bitin' my toes
But there I did stay, till she went away
From the shade of that old apple tree
  • A Dandy for Nineteen Years Old
  • Old Maid and the Burglar
  • Shade of the Old Apple Tree

    Here' another cute little ditty from the same R-T-R.
    about a goat

    THE GOAT

    There was a man who had a goat
    And he loved this goat
    Oh yes, he did
    He loved this goat, just like a kid

    One day this goat, felt frisk and fine
    Ate three red shirts from off the line
    The man, he grabbed him by the back
    And he tied him to the railroad track

    And soon the train pulled into sight
    The goat turned pale and he shook with fright
    He heaved a sigh, and tho' in pain
    Coughed up the shirts, and flagged the train.

    In the shade of the old apple tree
    Between two plump legs I could see
    A little red spot with some hair in a knot
    And it looked a fine target to me
    I could hear the buzz buzz of the bee
    As he sunk his grub hooks into me
    Her backside was fine but you should have seen mine
    In the shade of the old apple tree

    Here's how I heard in in junior high sometime in the sixties . . .

    It was under the old apple tree
    That she first showed it to me
    It was hairy and black and she called it her crack
    I pulled out my telephone pole
    And rammed it into her hole
    Before she could scream
    I shot out the cream
    And that is the end of my story

    Now you know my daddy he was quite a fighter,
    My mother she was quite a fighter too
    Especially while fighting with poor father
    When she used to beat him black and blue.
    Paw would find a soft place in the woodshed
    Just to sleep his little cares away
    There is one good thing about my dear old parents
    In the house thry's never fight as I can say...

    They'd go out 'neath the old apple tree
    Where there was lots more room don't you see
    Then maw would start in with a big rolling pin
    And beat father 'til he couldn't see,
    In the fight they upset the bee hive
    And they found that them bees were alive
    They didn't sting paw
    Those bees they stung maw
    In the shade of the old apple tree.


    When I was a boy there was a couple named Clyde and Edie Miller who performed this one, among others. He played a harmonica that was no more than in inch wide, and he never touched it with his hands.

    What is anti women about a guy and a gal getting it on ?

    I think that you'll find that this sort of thing happens quite often between the sexes and I am led to believe that some women enjoy it even if it is too good for them.

    >Why do so many such songs and poems have to be so anti women?

    In the case of my posting, perhaps because it was written by a 13-year-old boy? (or at least passed on in the oral tradition by one}. What I was wondering was why I remember it, having heard it only once and that over 35 years ago.

    Not posted to be anti-woman, but only for its historical significance to tomorrows folk researchers.

    My ex was a shrink, and she said that this sort of thing indicates a deep rooted fear/hatred for women. Furthermore, to keep this going does more harm than good. (I used to use that same argument about history)

    Sorry Kendall

    You and your ex whether he be a shrink or a garbage collector makes no difference. If you don't enjoy this sort of material that is your choice, no-one can argue with that. However, I would still like to know what is degrading to women to sing a song about sex ?
    As I said above both sexes do partake in this activity.

    That parody is not about sex! It's about degrading remarks about a woman's anatomy.
    Who said anything about censorship? I'm not in favor of censorship either; but I am in favor of good taste.
    I learned a very dirty parody of that song when I was 13...I grew up.

    From a female point of view I found the lyrics unpalatable. I'm not a prude but it leaves me uneasy when a part of my anatomy is described in such a coarse way. Maybe the originator was a young boy who didn't know any better but I do question the need to continue with it.

    This has been recorded by many, including , Ramblin' Jack Elliott, who recorded, In The Shade Of The Old Apple Tree, in the early sixties. I learned this song from a tape nearly twenty years ago. But you only have part of the song here, the lady in question had a wooden leg which proved to be "A Limb From That Old Apple Tree.

    This is the only parody of "In the Shade Of The Old Apple Tree" that I know, and I use it every year for Mother's Day:

    In the shade of the old apple tree,
    Where my mother came looking for me,
    With a handful of switches
    She took down my britches,
    And oh, how she gave it to me!

    Well, I don't quite remember my sin,
    But I'm sure that I did it again,
    The outcome of which is,
    Mama cut lots of switches
    In the shade of that old apple tree.



    (The first half I heard from someone. The second half I sort of made up/reconstructed from what little memory I had of the second half.)

    Jack Elliott does it very close to the original post. Speck Rhodes used to sing another one that I don't remember exactly, but something like:

    In the shade of the old apple tree
    I sat on a big bumblebee
    ????
    My friends tried to move me in vain,
    I sat there and grinned through my pain
    I said, "Can't you see?
    "It's beneath my dignity!"

    'Twas under the old apple tree
    through a hole in her pants I could see
    A little brown thing, all covered in hair
    That was slowly winking at me.

    I learnt that over 50 years ago,but the second verse is lost to memory. Perhaps I will forget the first verse in another 50 years.

    Here is one of the versions my Dad taught me.

    In the shade of the old apple tree,
    There's a bulldog lives next door to me.
    One night it was late,
    I got in the wrong gate,
    And that bulldog he took hold of me.

    Where he bit me I don't like to tell,
    But I wish that bulldog was in . . . jail.
    You can tell at a glance
    Where he tore my new pants,
