Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Oh, where is little Maggie
Over yonder she stands
Rifle on her shoulder
Six-shooter in her hand

[Verse 2]
How can I ever stand it
Just to see them two blue eyes
Shining like some diamonds
Like some diamonds in the sky

[Verse 3]
Rather be in some lonely hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine
Than to see you be another man's darling
And to know that you'll never be mine

[Verse 4]
Well, it's march me away to the station
With my suitcase in my hand
Yes, march me away to the station
I'm off to some far-distant land

[Verse 5]
Sometimes I have a nickel
And sometimes I have a dime
Sometimes I have ten dollars
Just to pay for little Maggie's wine

[Verse 6]
Pretty flowers are made for blooming
Pretty stars are made to shine
Pretty girls are made for boy's love
Little Maggie was made for mine

[Verse 7]
Well, yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hand
She's a drinking down her troubles
Over courting some other man
