Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I wandered today to the hills, Maggie
To watch the scene below
The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie
As we used to long, long ago

Circle left
The green grove is gone from the hills, Maggie
Where first the daisies spring

Promenade
The creaking old mill is still, Maggie
Since you and I were young


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around you know
Around the corner dosado and go
Swing thru along the line and let the boys run right
Tag the line and cloverleaf tonight
The girls square thru 3/4 round and then
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
Oh, to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
When you and I were young


ALTERNATE LYRICS

They say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie
My steps are much slower than then
My face is a well-written page, Maggie
And time all alone was the pen

Circle left
They say we have out-lived our time, Maggie
As dated as songs that we've sung

Promenade
But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
When you and I were young


TAG

When you and I were young

Maggie Lyrics ID: 578

I wandered today to the hills, Maggie
To watch the scene below
The creek and the rusty old mill, Maggie
Where we met long ago
The green grove is gone from the hills, Maggie
Where first the daisies sprung
The rusty old mill is still, Maggie
Since you and I were young

There's a city so silent and low, Maggie
Where the young and the brave and the best
In polished white mansions of stone, Maggie
Have each found a place of rest
The fields where the birds used to play, Maggie
And join in the songs that were sung
But we sang as gay as they, Maggie
Since you and I were young

Oh they say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie
My steps are less sprightly than then
My face is a well written page, Maggie
And time alone was the pen
They say that your hair is as grey, Maggie
As the spray by the white breakers flung
But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
Since you and I were young

They say we are rigid and grey, Maggie
And our time on Earth nearly done
Let us sing of the days that are gone, Maggie
Since you and I were young

Since you and I were young

Composed by James Austin Butterfield.
Lyrics by George W. Johnson.
Recorded by Harry MacDonough and the Christy Minstrels; many others.
