Helen Creighton collected over four thousand folksongs, stories, and myths over the course of her career. This variant of I’ll Give My Love an Apple from Dennis Smith, a retired sea captain living in Chezzetcook, NS. Creighton used to cite this as one of her favourites, although Smith wasn't sure why she was so excited, saying, “it’s only a little one, about as long as my thumb."
