This is "Watching the Apples Grow" from Stan Rogers' really excellent 
album Fogarty's Cove.  There's some very good backup guitar which I 
would really appreciate someone tabbing. It's probably Curly Boy Stubbs 
doing it, with Stan just playing rhythm, but I could be wrong.


Capo 2 frets up; the chords shown are just the chord shapes as if the 
capo wasn't there, so the REAL chords (if you don't have a capo) would 
be a whole step up, e.g. in the first verse: D,G,D,Bm,G,D

C                                             F
It's early up, Ontario farm, chicken crow for day
              C                                 Am
I wish I grew Annapolis apples up above Fundy's Bay
F     C
Oh it seems so far away

C                                                     F
On the ridge above Acadia's town to the valley down below
                   C                                          Am
The evening shadow falls upon the family listening to the radio
F   C
And watching the apples grow

Chorus:
F                 C                      F               C
Down on the farm, back among the family, away from Ontario
F               C                                         Am
Hear the ladies singing to their men, dancing it heel and toe
F   C
And watching the apples grow


[There's a fiddle solo at this point.  If anyone would like to      ] 
[transcribe it, that'd be really cool.  I mean transcribe it for    ] 
[fiddle, I could probably get it for guitar, with a lot of trouble. ]

C                                            F
Ontario, y'know I've seen a place I'd rather be
                      C                                         Am
Your scummy lakes and city of Toronto don't do a damn thing for me
F   C
I'd rather live by the sea

C                                                       F
I've watched the V's of geese go by, the foxfoot in the snow
                          C                                       Am
I've climbed the ridge of Gaspereaux Mt., looking to the valley below
F   C
And watching the apples grow.

Notes on the Solo:
If anyone knows who's playing this, please tell me!
It's played quick & snappy- keeps you on your toes!
When he slides from/to a note it's always started on a whole step (two 
frets) above/below, whichever's appropriate.
The backup Am and F following it are single strums only (this goes for 
the rest of the song, too).
There are probably some grace notes & stuff which I didn't get, 'cause 
this is my first attempt at transcribing anything.  Nevertheless, I 
think it's pretty good.


Notes on the Song:
Great song!
The rhythm is somewhat bluegrassy, a fast boom-chicka (bass note - strum 
chord down/up).
The only  real trouble I had was figuring out where the chord switch was 
on the last line of each verse.  There's a run from F to C which I play 
something like this:
  F       C
  v . . . v . . . v . . . v . . . 
|-1---------------------------0---|
|-1---------------------------1---|
|-2---------------------------0---|
|-3-------3---2---0---2-------2---|
|-3-----------------------3---3---|
|---------------------------------|

So I'm not entirely sure where the actual switch is, but I think it's
right the way I finally put it.


Notes on the Tablature:
'v' is the beat.  
'. . .' are the notes in-between, though the middle '.' could be 
considered a lighter downbeat.
'/' is a slide up the note following.
'\' is a slide down to the  note following.


Please send any comments, questions, queries, criticisms, about this 
transcription to ME because Stan Rogers ain't around no more.
