Sonny James – Goodbye Maggie Goodbye lyrics

Maggie lies under the cold freshy turnin' ground
Everyone's gone but me I'm still around
I hate to go yes I hate to leave Maggie might keep me Maggie might grieve
Goodbye Maggie Maggie goodbye goodbye Maggie Maggie goodbye
I miss you so I can't help but cry I love you so goodbye Maggie Maggie goodbye

My heart is breaking as I walk away if I could help her now I'd gladly stay
Yes I would gladly take my Maggie's place if it would bring back her smiling face
Maggie was little she was only four she'll be afraid to knock at heaven's door
The angels treat her oh so gently and kind Maggie was cherished Maggie was mine
Goodbye Maggie Maggie goodbye...
