    "In The Shade Of The Old Apple Tree" Lyrics

    Leon Redbone

    The oriole with joy was sweetly singing
    The little brook was babbling it's tune
    The village bells at noon were gaily ringing
    The world seem'd brighter than a harvest moon

    For there within my arms I gently pressed you
    And blushing red, you slowly turned away
    I can't forget the way I once caressed you
    I only pray we'll meet another day

    I've really come a long way from the city
    And though my heart's breaking I'll be brave

    I've brought this bunch of flowr's, I think they're pretty
    To place upon a freshly moulded grave

    If you will show me, Father, where she's lying
    Or if it's far, just point it out to me
    Said he, "She told us all when she was dying
    To bury her beneath the apple tree"

    In the shade of the old apple tree
    Where the love in your eyes I could see
    When the voice that I heard, like the song of the bird
    Seem'd to whisper sweet music to me

    I could hear the dull buzz of the bee
    In the blossoms as you said to me
    With a heart that is true, I'll be waiting for you
    In the shade of the old apple tree
