The Statler Brothers – When You And I Were Young Maggie lyrics

I wander today to the hill Maggie to watch the scene below
The creek and the creeking old mill Maggie "as we used to" long long ago
The green grove is gone from the hill Maggie where first the daisies sprung
The creeking old mill is still Maggie since you and I were young
Oh they say that I'm feeble with age Maggie my steps are much slower than then
My face is a well written page Maggie and time all alone was the pen
They say we have outlived our time Maggie as they hear our song that we sung
But to me you're as fair as you were Maggie when you and I were young
When you and I were young
