    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<BR>

    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<BR>

    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<BR>

    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<BR>

    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
