Apple Suckling Tree

Lyrics: Bob Dyln
Music: Bob Dyln

Played by Phil Lesh & Friends at Terrapin Crossraods in August 2016.

Old man sailing in a dinghy boat
Down there
Old man down is baiting a hook
On there
Gonna pull man down on a suckling hook
Gonna pull man into the suckling brook
Oh yeah

Now, he�s underneath that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah
Under that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah
That�s underneath that tree
There�s gonna be just you and me
Underneath that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah

I push him back and I stand in line
Oh yeah
Then I hush my Sadie and stand in line
Oh yeah
Then I hush my Sadie and stand in line
I get on board in two-eyed time
Oh yeah

Under that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah
Under that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah
Underneath that tree
There�s just gonna be you and me
Underneath that apple suckling tree
Oh yeah

Now, who�s on the table, who�s to tell me
Oh yeah
Who�s on the table, who�s to tell me
Oh yeah
Who should I tell, oh, who should I tell
The forty-nine of you like bats out of hell
Oh underneath that old apple suckling tree
