Thread Name: Lyr Req: Maggie May (from A. L. Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A. L. Lloyd's Maggie May
Although I first heard this by Lloyd on EDS, I actually learned it from a retired merchant officer from Chester. His version was almost identical except for using Lloyd's last verse as a chorus.
Words you're missing are: I played off from the home; while drinking up the gin;head more bent than broke: Park Lane pawn shop; the judge he guilty founf her (rhymes with bounder) poxed too many sailors. Enjoy -- Tom
