Hand-Picked Tomatoes

The Song:

This is the name of one of the tracks on Pianologues. A pianologue is "a performance at the piano, sometimes with a verbal accompaniment by the performer." This one is meant to be a sea shanty, for some reason.

Many of the song titles that fill out Song Reader are references to older songs/sheet music. "Hand-Picked Tomatoes" is a generic enough phrase that I think it was likely a song back in the early 1900s, but I was unable to find exact evidence of such a thing.
