  • (Dolly Parton)

    He lived by the apple orchard in this little orchard shack
    His real name was Jackson Taylor but I called him AppleJack
    Now old AppleJack was loved by everyone he ever knew
    AppleJack picked apples but he picked the banjo too

    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song for me and I'll sing
    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song, let your banjo ring

    Now I'd go down to AppleJack's almost everyday
    We'd sit and we'd drink applejack that old AppleJack had made
    Then he'd take his banjo down then he'd ask me if I'd sing
    And he would play the banjo and I'd play my tambourine

    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song for me and I'll sing
    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song, let your banjo ring

    That's when I was just a kid and now that I am grown
    All I have are memories, old AppleJack is gone
    Oh but he left me his banjo and it always takes me back
    And everytime I play it I still hear AppleJack

    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song for me and I'll sing
    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song, let your banjo ring

    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song for me and I'll sing
    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song, let your banjo ring

    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song for me and I'll sing
    Play a song for me AppleJack, AppleJack
    Play a song, let your banjo ring
