About this tab version
This is based on the recorded album version (heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE7-h8tCJfM). Added the C7 chord on the later chorus just because it jazzes it up a little bit, but the C7 chord is completely optional. The strumming pattern is very rhythmic, and is easy to pick up by listening to Dolly Parton's original. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro] C  F  C  F  G7  C  F  C  F  C  G7  C  F  C

   C                                  F              C
He lived by the apple orchard in this little orchard shack
    C                                F            G7
His real name was Jackson Taylor but I called him Apple Jack
        C                            F           C
Now old Apple Jack was loved by everyone he ever knew
F                 C              G7               C    F   C
Apple Jack picked apples but he picked the banjo too

       C                 F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F                    C      G7
Play a song for me and I'll sing
       C                   F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F              G7    C     F    C (hold)
Play a song, let your banjo ring

    C                           F         C
Now I'd go down to Apple Jack's almost everyday
     C                                     F            G7
We'd sit and we'd drink applejack that old Apple Jack had made
          C                              F             C
Then he'd take his banjo down then he'd ask me if I'd sing
    F                 C             G7             C   F   C 
And he would play the banjo and I'd play my tambourine

       C                 F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F                    C      G7
Play a song for me and I'll sing
       C        C7         F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F              G7    C     F    C
Play a song, let your banjo ring


[Interlude] C  F  C  F  C  G7  C  C7  F  C  F  G7  C  F  C 

    C                            F             C
That's when I was just a kid and now that I am grown
    C                        F            G7
All I have are memories, old Apple Jack is gone
        C                            F              C
Oh, but he left me his banjo and it always takes me back
F                 C              G7               C    F   C
And every time I play it, I still hear Apple Jack (Everybody sing!)


       C                 F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F                    C      G7
Play a song for me and I'll sing
       C        C7         F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F              G7    C     F    C
Play a song, let your banjo ring

Play a song for me and I'll sing

Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F              G7    C     F    C
Play a song, let your banjo ring

       C                 F           C
Play a song for me Apple Jack, Apple Jack
       F                    C      G7
Play a song for me and I'll sing
       C        C7         F           C
