Traditional - Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry

I wish I was an apple a-hanging in a tree
And ev'ry time my sweethear passed, she'd take a bite of me
She told me that she loved me, she called me shugar plum
She throwed her arms around me, I thought my time had 'round

  Get along home, Cind,Cindy (3)
  I'll mary you one day

Oh, Cindy got religion, she got it once before
But when she heard my old banjo, she was the first one on the floor
Cindy went to preachin', she swung around and 'round
She got so full of glory, she knocked the preacher down
