American Old Time Song Lyrics: 51 Maggie Maguire

Of pretty girls the singers sing, and poets of them write,
But Jimmy Johnson has a girl, who's simply "out of sight,"
Indoors or out, he raves about their happy wedding day,
And seated by her side each night, he'll take her hand and say:
oh! Maggie Magnire, believe me, my girl. I adore you;
My heart's all afire, and I'll do anything for you;
Name the day, don't turn me away, I'm lonely when you roam;
Say you'll be true, and I'll marry you as soon as I buy the home.
They often have a quarrel, just like others, her and Jim,
And then for days she'll pass him by, won't even nod to him:
Somehow they always "make up," though, when Jimmy to her brings
A little present, which he gives, as pleadingly he sings:-Chorus.
