Maple Street Memories
Recorded by The Statler Brothers
Written by Don Reid
[3/4 time]

C C7
We were both nine years old when you came to town
F C
I remember the big Allied Van

My momma went over and took you all lunch
D7 G7
My dad gave your dad a hand

C C7
And the first time I saw you was through the screen door
F C
When the paper I threw missed the porch
F C
Lord it's been years since I carried the news
G7 C
But I still carry the torch

C7
A Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
F C
Summer nights and ice cream cones

Take the red from the roses the sun from the sky
G7 F
But leave my Maple Street memories alone
C G7 C
Leave my Maple Street memories alone

C7
We played hide-n-seek in the buildings out back
F C
I was easy to find I admit

As the years flew away it got harder to hide
D7 G7
The fact I thought you were it

C C7
Then we stood by the Lilac bush in your yard
F C
Your pink prom gown late in May
F C
Your mom took our picture I took your hand
G7 C
And you took my breath away

Repeat #2 With Maple...

C7
I never go back that I don't stand in the yard
F C
And look at your window upstairs

In my mind I see you combing your hair
D7 G7
Blowing kisses at me in the air

C C7
Then one time at Christmas I saw you come home
F C
Your arms full of children that day
F C
It was later that night when I put mine to bed
G7 C
I put my Maple Street memories away

C7
Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
F C
Summer nights and bicycle games

Leave me with something my heart can take
G7 F
But take those Maple Street memories away

C G7 C
Take those Maple Street memories away
