Over yonder stands little Maggie With a dram glass in her hand She's passin' away her troubles And a-foolin' with another man Oh, how can I ever stand it To see those two blue eyes A-shining like two diamonds Like two diamonds in the sky Pretty flowers were made for blooming Pretty stars were made to shine Pretty girls were made for to love you Little Maggie was meant to be mine Sometimes I have a nickel And sometimes I have a dime And sometimes I have ten dollars Just to pay little Maggie's fine Go away, go away Little Maggie Go and do the best you can I'll get me another woman You can get you another man Oh, march me down to the station With a suitcase in my hand Well, I'm goin' away to leave you I'll go to some far distant land Well the last time I seen Little Maggie She was sittin' by the banks of the sea Had a forty-five a-lyin' beside her And a banjo on her knee I would rather be in some dark holler Where the sun could never shine Than to know you’re another man’s darlin' And no longer a darlin' of mine Lay down your last gold dollar Lay down your gold watch and chain Little Maggie's gonna dance for daddy Listen to that ol' banjo ring (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
