Ralph Stanley Maple On The Hill written by Gussie Davis

Jim Lauderdale

G C G

In a quiet country village stood a Maple On The Hill

G D

Where I sat with my Geneva long ago

G C G

As the stars were shining brightly we could hear the whippoorwill

G D7 G

As we sat beneath that Maple On The Hill

Fiddle Solo

G C G

We would sing love songs together while the birds had gone to rest

G D

We would listen to the murmur o'er the hill

G C G

Will you love me little darling as you did those starry nights

G D7 G

As we sat beneath that Maple On The Hill

guitar solo

G C G

Don't forget me, little darling when they lay me down to die

G D

Just one little wish, darling that I pray

G C G

As you linger there in sadness thinking darling, of the past

G D7 G

Lay your teardrops kiss the flowers on my grave

banjo solo

G C G

I will soon be with the angels on that bright and peaceful shore

G D

Even now I hear them coming o'er the hill

G C G

So goodbye my little darling, it is time for us to part

G D7 G

I must leave you and that Maple On The Hill
