Maple Street Memories

Song Author Don Reid Performer: the Statler Brothers Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]We were both nine years old when you came to [C7]town   
I [F]remember the big Allied [C]Van  

My momma went over and took you all lunch
My [D7]dad gave your dad a [G7]hand   

And the [C]first time I saw you was through the screen [C7]door   
When the [F]paper I threw missed the [C]porch
[F]Lord it's been years since I [C]carried the news
But [G7]I still carry the [C]torch


A Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
Summer [F]nights and ice cream [C]cones

Take the red from the roses the sun from the sky
But leave my Maple Street [G7]memories [F]alone
Leave my [C]Maple Street [G7]memories [C]alone


We played hide-n-seek in the buildings out back
I was [F]easy to find I [C]admit

As the years flew away it got harder to hide
The [D7]fact I thought you were [G7]it   

Then we [C]stood by the Lilac bush in your yard
Your [F]pink prom gown laced in [C]vein
Your [F]mom took our picture I [C]took your hand
And [G7]you took my breath [C]away

Repeat #2 With Maple...


I never go back that I don't stand in the yard
And [F]look at your window up[C]stairs

In my mind I see you combing your hair
Blowing [D7]kisses at me in the [G7]air   
Then [C]one time at Christmas I saw you come home
Your [F]arms full of children that [C]day  
It was [F]later that night when I [C]put mine to bed
I put my [G7]Maple Street memories [C]away


Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
Summer [F]nights and bicycle [C]games

Leave me with something my heart can take
But take those [G7]Maple Street memories [F]away

[C]Take those Maple Street [G7]memories [C]away

We were both nine years old when you came to town
I remember the big Allied Van

My momma went over and took you all lunch
My dad gave your dad a hand

And the first time I saw you was through the screen door
When the paper I threw missed the porch
Lord it's been years since I carried the news
But I still carry the torch

A Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
Summer nights and ice cream cones

Take the red from the roses the sun from the sky
But leave my Maple Street memories alone
Leave my Maple Street memories alone

We played hide-n-seek in the buildings out back
I was easy to find I admit

As the years flew away it got harder to hide
The fact I thought you were it

Then we stood by the Lilac bush in your yard
Your pink prom gown laced in vein
Your mom took our picture I took your hand
And you took my breath away

Repeat #2 With Maple...

I never go back that I don't stand in the yard
And look at your window upstairs

In my mind I see you combing your hair
Blowing kisses at me in the air
Then one time at Christmas I saw you come home
Your arms full of children that day
It was later that night when I put mine to bed
I put my Maple Street memories away

Maple Street memories and cherry tree games
Summer nights and bicycle games

Leave me with something my heart can take
But take those Maple Street memories away

Take those Maple Street memories away
