Lyrics

I wandered today to the hills Maggie
To watch the scenes below
Where the creek and the creaking old mill Maggie
Where we sat in a long long ago

The green grove is gone from the hill Maggie
And linnet and the daisy is sprung
And the creaking old mill is still Maggie
Since you and I were young

They say we are feeble with age Maggie
My steps are much slower than then
My face is a well written page Maggie
And time alone is the pen

They say we are feeble with age Maggie
As grey as the white breakers sprung
But to me you’re as fair as you were Maggie
Since you and I were young

They say we are old and grey Maggie
Our time here on earth nearly done
But to me you’re as fair as you were Maggie
Since you and I were young
