Old Apple Tree

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.
