  The Basement Tapes - october 1967  

I went down to the river on a saturday morn
A lookin' around just to see who's born
I found a little chicken down on his knees
I went up an' yelled to him
Please, please, please
He said, ''Don't ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Apple's got your fly.''

I went down to the corner at half past ten
I's lookin'  around i wouldn't say when
I looked down low, i looked above
An' who did i see but the one i love
She said, ''Don't  ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Apple's got your fly.''

Now i went down to the beanery at half past twelve
A-lookin' around just to see myself
I spotted a horse an' a donkey too
I looked for a cow an' i saw me a few
They said, ''Don't  ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Apple's got your fly.''

Now i went down to the pumphouse the other night
A-lookin' around what was oughta sight
I looked high an' low for that big ol' tree
I did go upstairs but i didn't see nobody but me
I said, ''Don't  ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Don't ya tell Henry
Apple's got your fly.''  up
