June Apples

 

County 701, Jenkins, Jarrell & Cockerham

 

Key <A>

 

I wish I was a June apple

Hanging on that tree

Every time my true love passed

Sheíd take a little bite of me

 

Going across the mountain

Iím going in the spring

Itís when I get on the other side

Iím gonna hear my woman sing

 

Canít you hear that banjo sing

I wish that girl was mine

Donít you hear that banjo sing

I wish that girl was mine

 

Charlie heís a nice young man

Charlie heís a dandy

Charlie heís a nice young man

Feeds the girls on candy.

 

Over the river to feed my sheep

Over the river Charlie

Itís over the river to feed my sheep

Feed them on barley

 

I wish I had some sticks and poles

To build my chimney higher

Cos every time it rains and snows

It puts out all my fire
