Little Maggie

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by BK3

Well, yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hand
She's a drinking away her troubles
She's courting some other man

How can I ever stand it
Just to see those two blue eyes
Shining in the moonlight
Like two diamonds in the sky

The last time I saw little Maggie
Sitting on the banks of the sea
With a forty-four around her
And a banjo on her knee

Lay down your last gold dollar
Lay down your gold watch and chain
Little Maggie's gonna dance for daddy
Listen to that old banjo ring

Pretty flowers were made for blooming
Pretty stars were made to shine
Pretty women were made for loving
Little Maggie was made for mine

Well, yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hand
She's a drinking away her troubles
She's courting some other man
