Mississippi Sheiks – Sweet Maggie lyrics

Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
Where you been so long?
Tell me sweet Maggie
A-where you been so long?
It haven't been no lovin'
Since a-you been gone (home)

Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
Where'd you stay last night?
Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
A-where'd you stay last night?
You come home this mo'nin'
Sun was shinin' bright

I met sweet Maggie
'Way across that sea
I met sweet Maggie
A-way across that sea
She wouldn't write me no letters
She didn't care for me

Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
What you goin' a-do?
Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
A-what you goin' a-do?
Just a little bit a-lovin'
An let your heart be true

'Yeah! '

(fiddle & guitar)

Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
Dear pal a-mine
Sweet Maggie, sweet Maggie
A-dear pal a-mine
Now, she left me walkin'
Tears rollin' down, cryin'

If you see sweet Maggie
Tell her to hurry home
If you see sweet Maggie
Tell her to hurry home
It haven't been no lovin'
Times that you been gone

Tell me sweet Maggie
What's the matter, now?
Tell me, sweet Maggie
A-what's the matter, now?
You wouldn't write me no letters
You didn't love me no how

Goodbye sweet Maggie
Now, you fare you well
Goodbye sweet Maggie
Now, I declare you well
When I get back here
Can't anyone tell.
