Title Oh I Had Such a Pretty Dream Mamma - The Old Apple Tree
Description OB X BAB SUCH A FBETTY DBEAM HAWU % I had such a pretty dread Mamma Such pleasant and beautiful things* Of dear little neat in meadows of rest, Where the birdie's her lullaby sings, (Bepeat last two lines) A dear little stream full of lilies Crept over the green mossy stones, And just where I lay, its thin sparkling spray, Sang sweetly in delicate tones, (Repeat last two lines) I saw there a beautiful angel, With crown all bespangled vith dew. She touched me and spoke, and I quickly awoke, And found there dear Mamma vas you. Submitted by Opal Ptandsen, Mt. Pleasant, UtA . THE OLD APPLE TKEE The old apple tree in the orchard, lives in my memory* Xt reminds me of my pappy* He was handsome, young and happy, when he planted the old apple tree* Then one day, pappy took widow Norton out on a jamboree And when he took her back at sun up, Brother Norton raised his gun up in the tree* When the neighbors came after Pappy, up in the tree was he. They took a rope and strung him by the neck And they hung him, to a limb of the old apple tree. Oh, they hurled hia out in the orchard, out of his misery, They put the apples in a basket, chopped the tree down for a caalcet And my poor pappy'b gone with the tree-Say gvxxiyu-mygoaiiye. Say goodbye to the old apple tree. If ny pappy had of known it, he'd be sorry that h« groved it, 'Causa he died on the old apple tree. Submitted by Donna Peterson, Sterling, Utah. -85-
