lyrics

Maggie’s Silver Mine


The streets were paved with dust and coal
I found her panning for gold, back in ’81
She was already gone

Her hair was down, her knees apart
She had a graveyard heart
And a smoking gun, back in ‘81

I’ve been searching everywhere
For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips
A six-shooter on her hip
Last seen kissing me underneath the silver tree
With nothing but time
That’s when Maggie was mine

Empty bottles built these walls
He was a wrecking ball
Stumbling into town
Hiding underground

Late one night the fog was low
He crept to her door
She was all alone
I was deep down below

I’ve been searching everywhere
For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips
A six-shooter on her hip
Last seen kissing me underneath the silver tree
With nothing but time
That’s when Maggie was mine

Everybody heard the shots
Before his heart stopped
She was on the run

The streets were paved with dust and cold
I found his blood stained soul
Rising with the dawn
She was already gone

I’ve been searching everywhere
For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips
A six-shooter on her hip
Last seen in my dreams wanted just to marry me
Locked up in my arms underneath the silver tree
He was just an outlaw knocking on the wrong door
She never missed her mark,
One bullet, two hearts
Ten years no trace tell me that you’ve seen her face
Take me back in time
Back when Maggie was mine
