Comments
Traditional folk song from the southern Appalachians probably from the late 1800s. The song, about a hard drinking, funny loving heart breaker. It is considered a cousin to Darlin' Cory. Both use only two chords and fewer than the standard number of notes typical in folk songs, but the tunes are distinctly different. Similarly, while the lyrics to the two songs are not the same, versions of the songs often share this verse:

"Last time a saw Little Maggie [Darlin' Cory]
She was sitting on the banks of the sea
With a forty-four on her hip
And a banjo on her knee".
