Apple Scruff...Apple Scruuuuufs...how I love you!


Here is a pretty humorous cartoon that Lucy drew for a 1971 issue of the Scruffs Monthly Magazine.




I have been listen to George's wonderful song, "Apple Scruffs" tonight while scanning Beatles photos. I just really love everything about this song. The Apple Scruffs are my long lost soul sisters (alright maybe that is a far stretch), but ever since I first read about them when I first became a Beatles fan in the late 1980's, I wanted to know more about them. It totally blows me away that through this blog, I actually have had conversations online with them!! I get a little star-struck at times. So in honor of the beautiful ladies in the Apple Scruffs....thanks for everything!

Now I've watched you sitting there
Seen the passers-by all stare
Like you have no place to go
But there's so much they don't know about apple scruffs

You've been stood around for years

Seen my smiles and touched my tears

How it's been a long, long time

And how you've been on my mind, my apple scruffs

Apple scruffs, apple scruffs
How I love you,
how I love you

In the fog and in the rain
Through the pleasures and the pain
On the step outside you stand
With your flowers in your hand, my apple scruffs


While the years they come and go
Now, your love must surely show me
That beyond all time and space
Were together face to face, my apple scruffs

Apple scruffs, apple scruffs
How I love you, how I love you
