'Twas the good ship Carolina that paid off in Liverpool
O and two-pound-ten a month it was my pay;
O wasn't I a fool in the town of Liverpool
When I fell in with a girl called Maggie May?

O is that you, Maggie May?
O they're taking you away,
And you'll never see old Lime Street any more,
For the judge he guilty found her for robbing a homeward-bounder
And he paid her passage to Van Diamond's shore.
In the morning when I woke,
I was absolutely broke,
And me suit of clothes had surely walked away,
She'd left a pair of dungarees, they were baggy at the knees,
And vanished was the girl called Maggie May.

T:Maggie May
