I've found these. The lyrics are credited to Tunney.

Maggie Pickens on the wall
Maggie Pickens very tall
Maggie Picken goin to fall
Maggie Pickens dancin

Maggie Pickens had a coo
Black and white abeen the brow
Open the gates and let her through
Maggie Pickens' ain coo

Maggie Pickens at Kilmore
Gatherin cockles by the score
She lifted her leg and let a roar
--What the devil ails you?

Maggie Pickens at Kilmore
She had daughters twenty-four
Wishes she could have some more
A row dil dootle deil dum

My mother sent me to the well
I missed my foot and in I fell
She really should have gone herself
What the devil ails you?

My mother sent me to the burn
With the scrubber and a churn
I fell in, was nearly drouned
A row dil dee dil dootle dum
