Maple On The Hill

	  		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
