American Old Time Song Lyrics: 57 Maggie Maguire

By Harry Castling and Wm. B. Gray.
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 lake her hand And say:
Oh! Maggie Mngnlre, 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 us 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.
