When It's Appleblossom Time
In Annapolis Valley

by "Alberta Slim" Eric C. Edwards

There's a valley leading down from the great Atlantic
to the westward where all beauty can be found.
Many years I've lived amongst the glory found there,
and to the world I wish this message known.

When it's apple blossom time in Annapolis Valley,
where all nature is in bloom to beautify;
When it's apple blossom time in Annapolis Valley,
where God's hand has made a land of Paradise.

There's a place that's dear to me in Annapolis Valley,
it's a little dream home nestled 'mongst the hills.
Silv'ry moonbeams dancing across the golden blossoms,
it brings back fondest memories to me.

When evening shadows fall on Annapolis Valley,
and sweet perfume from the blossoms fills the air,
There's no other place for me 'cause I'm so happy,
where nature has built beauty to compare.
