The other was on, the person stated:

" "The Old Apple Tree" is an American folk song. I really don't know how old. Growing up, I often heard the tune used as background music to cartoons made back in the 1930s and 1940s. My grandmother introduced me to the lyrics, which of course went right over my head".

First verse is:

There's an old apple tree in the orchard,
Lives in my memory,
It reminds me of my Pappy,
He was handsome, young and happy
When he planted that old apple tree.
