Maple On The Hill

The Carter Family

exibições 101

Near a quiet and country village stood a maple on the hill
there I set with my Geneva long ago
when the stars were shining brightly we could hear the whippoorwill
and we set beneath the maple on the hill

Don't forget me,little darling, when they've laid me down to die
just one little wish, darling, that I pray
As you linger there in sadness you are thinking 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 hill
Will you love me,little darling, as you did those starry nights
when we set beneath the maple on the hill

Don't forget me,little darling, when they've laid me down to die
just one little wish, darling, that I pray
As you linger there in sadness you are thinking of the past
let your teardrops kiss the flowers on my grave
