      About "Colonel Maggie"

      Lyrics for Roger Miller - "Colonel Maggie"

      Colonel Maggie is my friend she got my self respect right back for me
      Colonel Maggie is my friend with good old motherly sweet sympathy

      Flat down on the street with a bottle at my feet
      Gutter life and wine was all I craved
      Then she came up to me from the Salvation Army
      She thought that I was good enough to save

      Colonel Maggie is my friend she tried to put some pride back into me
      Colonel Maggie is my friend with good old motherly sweet sympathy

      She helped me to my feet and she got me off the street
      I was far too sick to look ashamed
      Some soup and hot tea and a blanket over me
      And when we talked she called me by my name

      Well that was years ago now I don't drink no more
      And rest her soul old Maggies dead and gone
      And when my will-powers weak I walk back to that street
      And Colonel Maggie seems to walk along
