Maple On The Hill-crd  Ralph Stanley

[G]In a quiet country village stood a [C]Maple On The [G]Hill
[G]Where I sat with my Geneva long [D]ago
[G]As the stars were shining brightly we could [C]hear the whippoor[G]will
[G]As we sat beneath that [D7]Maple On The [G]Hill
Fiddle Solo
[G]We would sing love songs together while the [C]birds had gone to [G]rest
[G]We would listen to the murmur o'er the [D]hill
[G]Will you love me little darling as you [C]did those starry nig[G]hts
[G]As we sat beneath that [D7]Maple On The [G]Hill
guitar solo
[G]Don't forget me, little darling when they l[C]ay me down to [G]die
[G]Just one little wish, darling that I [D]pray
[G]As you linger there in sadness thinking d[C]arling, of the p[G]ast
[G]Lay your teardrops kiss the [D7]flowers on my [G]grave
banjo solo
[G]I will soon be with the angels on that [C]bright and peaceful s[G]hore
[G]Even now I hear them coming o'er the [D]hill
[G]So  goodbye my little darling, it is [C]time for us to [G]part
[G]I must leave you and that [D7]Maple On The [G]Hill
