From the recording Tall Tales and Therefore Truths
Written by Mark Brine
1. If spreading smiles from good deed doin’
Is as American as apple pie
Then, let me tell you who I think must’a been a Boy Scout
Planting all across this nation the seeds of happiness inside
Yeah, I betcha JOHNNY APPLESEED MUST’A BEEN A BOY SCOUT
Now, can’t you see him in his uniform with that pot stuck on his crown
With his sack full of spuds of little good deeds just spreading them all around
Whistling away making work his play… you know who I’m talking about
Yeah, JOHNNY APPLESEED MUST’A BEEN A BOY SCOUT
2. Now, there’s folks that won’t agree with me…
And say I’m tampering with the truth but, I don’t care
‘cause, he must’a... yeah, he must’a been a Boy Scout
Who else would’ve ever taken the time?
It’s just got to be historical fact!... Yeah, Johnny Appleseed ...
I’ll guarantee you was a Boy Scout!
