Note: C* is a regular C played with the second finger lifted from the d string (4th string, 2nd fret). You don't
have to play it, but i think it sounds a little better when you do.

Well, I wish I was an apple hangin' on a tree

And every time my Cindy passed, take a little bite of me.

Get along home Cindy, Cindy

Get along home Cindy, Cindy

I'll marry you one day.

Well Cindy is my honey, the sweetest in the south
When we kissed the bees would all swarm around her mouth

Oh get along home Cindy, Cindy
Get along home
Get along home Cindy, Cindy
I'll marry you some day

Well, I wish I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew
I'd sew my Cindy to my side and down the road I'd go.

Get along home Cindy, Cindy...

Well Cindy got religion, she's had it once before.
She grabbed my old banjo, man, and threw it on the floor.

Well, get along home Cindy, Cindy...

Well it's apples in the summertime, peaches in the fall.
If I can't have the gal I want, I won't have none at all.

Get along home Cindy, Cindy...

Cindy hugged and kissed me, she hung her head and cried.
I swear she was the prettiest thing that ever lived or died.
Get along home Cindy, Cindy
Get along home
Get along home Cindy, Cindy
I'll marry you one day
I'll marry you one day
I'll marry you one day
