Maple on the Hill
recorded by Hank Locklin              
written by Addison Cole

G                                             C            G
Here upon the quiet country village stood the maple on the hill
                    A7          D7
There I sat with my Geneva long ago
G                                             C                G
When the stars were shining brightly we could hear the whippoorwill
                      D7           G
As we sat beneath the maple on the hill
                                           C                 G
We would sing love songs together when the birds had gone to rest
                         A7            D7
And we'd listened to the murmur of the leaves
G                                             C            G
Then you'd throw your arms around me lay your head upon my chest
                      D7           G
As we sat beneath the maple on the hill
                                         C               G
Now we're getting old and feeble and our hair is turning gray
                      A7              D7
We no longer hear the rippling of the leaves
G                                    C                G
Still I always love you darling as I did those starry nights
                        D7           G
When we sat beneath the maple on the hill
                                       C              G
Don't forget me little darling as they lay me down to rest
                         A7               D7
Will you keep this final promise that you gave
G                                          C           G
While you linger there in silence thinking only of the past
                            D7            G
May your teardrops kiss the flowers on my grave
