Basics of Bluegrass Banjo
Lyrics from...
basics of bluegrass banjo

Little Maggie

Traditional – Each verse has the same melody.

O’er yonder stands little Maggie,
With a dram glass in her hands.
She's drinkin’ away her troubles,
She's a courtin’ some other man.

How can I ever stand it,
To see them pretty blue eyes.
Shining like two diamonds,
Like diamonds in the sky.

Last time a saw little Maggie,
Was down on the banks of the stream/
Had a forty-four strapped around her,
Had a five-string on her knee.

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

Go away, go away little Maggie,
Run just as fast as you can.
I’ll get me another woman,
Go and find you another man.
