"The Apple Tree Song"

THE MINISTER HAD JUST CLOSED A REVIVAL IN A HUGE MIDWESTERN CITY,STEPPED ON THE TRAIN ON HIS WAY HOME, AND FOUND HIMSELF SEATED BESIDE A YOUNG MAN.
FOR NOTHING BETER TO DO, HE JUST TRIED TO START UP A CONVERSATION, JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE WEATHER, JUST TO KINDA HELP THE TIME AS THEY TRAVELLED, AND HE NOTICED HE DIDN'T RECEIVE AN ANSWER. HE TURNED TO THE YOUNG MAN AND SAW THE TEARS STREAMING DOWN HIS CHEEK.
HE TOLD HIM, SON I'M A MINISTER, I'M A PREACHER,I'LL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU ANY WAY I CAN. THE YOUNG MAN THROUGH HIS TEARS PROCEEDED TO TELL THIS STORY.

HE SAID PREACHER, TWO YEARS AGO, I GOT SO MEAN AND HARD THAT MY MOM AND DAD COULDN'T DO ANYTHING WITH ME, WASN'T ANYTHING BUT A SOURCE OF EMBARASSMENT TO THEM. THINGS GOT SO BAD THAT I EVEN SO FAR AS TO HIT MY FATHER ONE DAY WITH MY FIST.
HE TOLD ME THEN, SON , I HATE TO DO IT, IT'S GONNA BREAK YOUR MOMMA'S HEART, BUT I'M GONNA HAVE TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE THIS HOUSE. JUST GET AWAY, WE DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU ANYMORE,PREACHER, I WANDERED ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS, THEN ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO, I GAVE MY HEART AND LIFE TO JESUS, TOLD MOM AND DAD WHAT HAD HAPPENED
TOLD THEM I'D BE ON THIS OLD TRAIN, TOLD EM I WAS COMIN' HOME.
THE PREACHER SAID THAT WAS ALL WELL AND GOOD
BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU'RE GONNA BE WELCOMED, HOW DO YOU KNOW EVERYTHING'S FORGIVEN?

HE SAID PREACHER, I TOLD DAD IN THE LETTER
THAT IF EVERYTHING WAS ALL RIGHT AND THEY COULD FORGIVE ME FOR ALL THE PAIN I'D CAUSED THEM, FOR HIM TO HANG A LITTLE WHITE RAG IN THE TOP OF THAT OLD APPLE TREE., I COULD SEE IT FROM THIS OLD TRAIN AND I'D KNOW IT'D BE ALRIGHT FOR ME TO COME HOME.
PREACHER , WOULD YOU LOOK OUT THERE AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE,I WANT TO GO HOME SO BAD, I'M SO SORRY FOR ALL THE HEARTACHE I'VE CAUSED, WOULD YOU LOOK, SEE IF YOU SEE ONE LITTLE RAG IN THE TOP OF THAT TREE?

WELL, THE OLD PREACHER, NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT, NOT KNOWIN' THE CIRCUMSTANCES, DUSTED THE WINDOW OF THAT OLD TRAIN, LOOKED OUT, TURNED AROUND HAD A BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE
HE SAID SON, YOU CAN RELAX,
SAID THAT THAT APPLE TREE'S IN FULL BLOSSOM,
I'VE NEVER SEEN SO MANY WHITE RAGS TIED ON ANYTHING, IN ALL MY LIFE, THAT'S NOT ALL, STANDIN' OUT THERE UNDER THAT APPLE TREE,
THERE'S MOM AND DAD WAVIN' A BIG WHITE BEDSHEET
IT SAID COME ON HOME SON, WELCOME HOME. AND YOU KNOW THAT'S JUST LIKE GOD
NO MATTER HOW FAR IN SIN WE'VE SUNK
NO MATTER HOW WE'VE WASTED OUR LIVES;
ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS SAY"fORGIVE ME OF MY SIN, I WANT TO LIVE FOR YOU, AND YOU KNOW, HE'LL WELCOME EACH AND EVERYONE OF US HOME!!

"COMING HOME" IS BEING PLAYED IN THE BACKGROUND AS THIS RECITATION IS BEING GIVEN!

HOPE THIS HELPS AND GOD BLESS!!!

Yay! Thank you for this. I don't need to take some efforts on searching for this on youtube.
