Little Maggie

The Stanley Brothers

 

Oh yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hands
She's drinking away her troubles
And a courting some other man

Oh how can I ever stand it
To see them two blue eyes
A shining in the moonlight
Like two diamonds in the sky


<inst> fiddle

 

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

 

Last time I saw little Maggie
She was sitting on the banks of the sea
With a forty-four around her
And a banjo on her knee
 

<inst> banjo

 

Iím a going down to the station

With my suitcase in my hand

Iím a going to leave this country

Iím a going to some far distant land

 

Go away, go away little maggie

Go and do the best you can

Iíll get me another woman

You can get you another man<end>


(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) another verse from bluegrass website
