Maple on the Hill

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family (Mother Maybelle, Helen, June, and Anita) and Johnny Cash:
In a quiet country village stood a maple on the hill
There I sat with my Geneva long ago
When the stars were shining brightly you could hear the whippoorwill
And we vowed to love each other ever more

Don't forget me, little darling when they lay me down to rest
Just one little wish, darling, that I pray
As I linger there in sadness thinking darling of the past
Let your teardrops kiss the flowers on my grave

We would sing love songs together when the birds had gone to rest
We would listen to the murmur of the rill
Will you love me, little darling, as you did that starry night
As we sat beneath the maple on the hill

I will soon be with the angels on that bright and peaceful shore
Even now I hear them coming o'er the hill
So goodbye, my little darling; it is time for us to part
I must leave you at the maple on the hill
