Maggie

Maggie
(Johnson & Butterfield)

       A                A7              D
The violets are scenting the woods, Maggie
      A                         E7
Displaying their charms to the bees
        A            A7         D
When I first said I loved only you, Maggie

A        E7           A
And you said you loved only me.

        D                             A
The chestnut bloom gleams thru the glade, Maggie
     E           B7        E7
A robin sang loud from a tree
        A            A7         D
When I first said I loved only you, Maggie
        A                   E7
A
And you said you loved only me.

The golden row daffodils shine, Maggie
And danced in the breeze on the lee
When I first said I loved only you, Maggie
And you said you loved only me.

The birds in the trees sang a song, Maggie
Of happier transports to be
When I first said I loved only you, Maggie
And you said you loved only me.

Our hopes they have never come true, Maggie
Our dreams, they were never to be
Since I first said I loved only you, Maggie
And you said you loved only me.
