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
