Abstract

VERSE 1
I wandered today to the hill, Maggie,
To watch the scene below;
The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie,
As we used to long ago,
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie,
Where first the daisies sprung;
The creaking old mill is still, Maggie,
Since you and I were young.

CHORUS
And now we are aged and gray, Maggie,
And the trials of life nearly done;
Let us sing of the days that are gone, Maggie,
When you and I were young.
Let us sing,

VERSE 2
A city so silent and lone, Maggie,
Where the young and the gay and the best,
In polished white mansions of stone, Maggie,
Have each found a place of rest,
Is built were the birds used to play, Maggie,
And join in the songs that were sung:
For we sang as gay as they. Maggie,
When you and I were young.

CHORUS

VERSE 3
They say I am feeble with age, Maggie
My steps are less sprightly than then,
My face is a well-written page, Maggie,
But time alone was the pen.
They say we are aged and gray, Maggie,
As sprays by the white breakers flung;
But to me you’re as fair as you were, Maggie
When you and I were young.

CHORUS
