NOTES [54 words]: "Down In The Old Cherry Orchard," recorded by Tom Darby and Jimmy Tarlton, repeats two lines of this song -- "Down in the old cherry orchard, Under the old cherry tree" -- several times but has no other connection that I can make out (on "Tom Darby and Jimmy Tarlton -- Atlanta 1929-1930," JSP Records JSP 7746B CD (2005)). - BS
