I’ll be with you in apple blossom time.
I’ll be with you to change your name to mine.
Someday in May I’ll come and say,
“Happy the bride, the sun shines on today.”
What a wonderful wedding there will be
What a wonderful day for you and me.
Church bells will chime, you will be mine
In apple blossom time.
When I was young, our family would watch “Sing Along with Mitch” with Mitch Miller and his all-male chorus. We would follow the bouncing ball and sing these old songs. We even had a couple of Mitch Miller record albums. This particular song was a favorite of my Mom’s at that time. My sister and I would play the album and when they started singing “I’ll be with you in apple blossom time” we could always hear Mom singing along somewhere in the house. She may have been doing laundry, making dinner or vacuuming; but you always knew she was happy with her song.
Happy Mother’s Day
