A recording of 'Little Maggie' by Frank Proffitt may be found on Various Artists 'Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still: The Warner Collection Vol I' Appleseed APR CD 1035. The text is pretty much the same as the Grayson and Whitter text posted above by Richie, but with the stanzas in a totally different order.
Roscoe Holcomb's version of 'Darlin' Corey' may be found on Roscoe Holcomb 'High Lonesome Sound' Smithsonian/Folkways SF CD 40079. It's a fine performance, which seems to be sourced from Boggs' 'Country Blues' with some alterations and additions, but it would be a real stinker to transcribe.
