LITTLE MAGGIE

Over yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hand
She’s a-drinkin’ away her troubles
And a-courting some other man

(break)

Oh, how can I ever stand it
To see those two blue eyes
There a shining like two diamonds
Like two diamonds in the sky

(break)

I’d rather be in some lonesome hollow
Where the sun don’t ever shine
Then to know you’re another man’s darling
And no longer a sweetheart of mine

(break)

Pretty flowers were made for bloomin’
Pretty stars were made to shine
Pretty girls were made for a boy’s love
Surely Maggie was made for mine

(break)

Now it’s march me down to the station
With my suitcase in my hand
I’m a going away for to leave you
I’m going to some far and distant land
