Peter, Paul & Mary


The Cherry Tree Carol

When joseph was an old man, an old man was he
He married virgin mary, the queen of galilee
He married virgin mary, the queen of galilee

And one day as they went walking, all in the garden green
There were berries and cherries as thick as may be seen
There were berries and cherries as thick as may be seen

Then mary said to joseph, so meek and so mild
Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child
Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child

The joseph flew in anger, in anger flew he
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee

Then up spoke baby jesus, from out mary’s womb
Bow down ye tallest tree that my mother might have some
Bow down ye tallest tree that my mother might have some

So bent down the tallest tree to touch mary’s hand
Said she, oh look now joseph, I have cherries at command
Said she, oh look now joseph, I have cherries at command

When joseph was an old man, an old man was he
He married virgin mary, the queen of galilee
He married virgin mary, the queen of galilee
