Thread Name: Darling Corey or Little Maggie
Subject: RE: Darling Corey or Little Maggie
The verses in that part, I believe, are:

Go away, go away, darlin' Corey
And bring to me my gun
I ain't no man for trouble
But trouble just now begun.

The last time I saw darling Corey
(She) had a forty-five in her hand
Kill them revenue officers
If they leave here with my man.

Go away, go away, darling Corey
Quit your hangin' around my bed
Whisky has ruined my body
Pretty women will kill me stone dead.
