Dolly Parton sang the song Cracker Jack on TV in the 70 but she never recorded it on a record, I am having a real hard time finding the words to it anybody know them or got em?

Do you mean "Apple Jack"?

Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
Play a song for me Apple Jack

About a banjo-pickin' cider-drinkin' orchardist and his pal, the neighbour kid. Our co-op radio bluegrass show plays it frequently, in a version by a Russian group fronted by a perky soprano with a borscht-thick accent.

Found this:

APPLE JACK (by 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

Chorus:

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

Repeat chorus

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

Repeat chorus 3 times
