A Man of Deeds.
John Chapman was Johnny Appleseed's real name. He became famous for his many good deeds--planting and growing
apple orchards for pioneers and settlers, as they began to move west in the Early 1800's. This fact is true, but a lot of
the stories and poems written about him were basically tall tales. But these tall tales, in combination with the many deeds
of Johnny Appleseed, made him one of the Greatest American Folklore Legends of all time.
JOHNNY APPLESEED SONG.
This is a chorus from Walt Disney's Version of "Johnny Appleseed," which was one of the segments from Disney's 10th
Oh, the Lord is good to me
and so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun, and the rain and the apple tree.
The Lord is good to me.
