Maple Street Memories:The Statler Brothers.
Album - Maple Street Memories - #9 on BB Hot

INTRO: D

#1.
D                                            D7
We were both nine years old when you came to town
  G                       D
I remember the big Allied Van.
D                                             E7
My momma went over and took you all lunch, my dad
                A7
gave your dad a hand.

#2. 
        D                                           
And the first time I saw you was through the screen 
D7             G                        D
door, when the paper I threw missed the porch.
G                             D
Lord, it's been years since I carried the news, but
  A7              D
I still carry the torch.

CHORUS:
D                                     D7
Maple Street memories and cherry tree games,
       G                    D
summer nights and ice cream cones.
D                                             D7
Take the red from the roses, the sun from the sky,
                          A7       G
but leave my Maple Street memories alone.
         D            A7       D
Leave my Maple Street memories alone.

D                                          D7
We played hide-n-seek in the buildings out back
      G              D
I was easy to find I admit.
D
As the years flew away it got harder to hide
    E7                      A7
The fact I thought you were it.

#3.
        D                               D7
Then we stood by the Lilac bush in your yard
     G                      D
Your pink prom gown late in May
     G                      D
Your mom took our pictures, I took your hand
    A7                 D
and you took my breath away.

CHORUS:
D                                     D7
Maple Street memories and cherry tree games,
       G                    D
summer nights and ice cream cones.
D                                             D7
Take the red from the roses, the sun from the sky,
                          A7       G
but leave my Maple Street memories alone.
         D            A7       D
Leave my Maple Street memories alone.

#4.
D                                         D7
I never go back that I don't stand in the yard
    G                     D
and look at your window upstairs.
D
In my mind I see you combing your hair
        E7                  A7
blowing kisses at me in the air.

#5.
     D                                    D7
Then one time at Christmas I saw you come home,
     G                          D
your arms full of children that day.
       G                       D
It was later that night when I put mine to bed,
         A7                    D
I put my Maple Street memories away.

OUTRO:
D                                     D7
Maple Street memories and cherry tree games.
       G                  D
Summer nights and bicycle games.
D
Leave me with something my heart can take,
                            A7       G
but take those Maple Street memories away
D                       A7       D
Take those Maple Street memories away.
