"'Maple on the Hill'", also known by its original title of "'We Sat Beneath the Maple on the Hill'" is a country and western standard, written by Gussie Davis in 1880.
The song was Davis's first published song. Davis published it himself, paying a local printer $20, and sold enough copies to make his money back plus a little more. In it, the singer recalls sitting with his love under the maple on the hill. Now, as he is dying, he bids her not to forget him.Waltz, R. B., and Engle, D.
