HOLDING MY MAGGIES HAND - 09/27/17 01:58 PM


HOLDING MY MAGGIES HAND

Got a bottle of wine
my old single bed 
smell turpentine
from walls painted red.
v
My cats called Moses
dogs called Blue
We planted roses
about to come through

But ain't it grand, holding MY Maggie's hand
yeah it's so grand holding my Maggies hand 
We can make love all through the night
pick stars to wish on shinning so bright
Feel so grand holding my Maggie's hand
v3
This is my oasis
lying next to her
Making funny faces
or stroking her hair
v
Listening to Dylan
on chairs outside
Later it's Springstein 
when we go for a ride
c
But ain't it grand holding MY Maggie's hand 
yeah it's so grand holding my maggies han 
We can make love all through the night
pick stars to wish on shinning so bright
Feel so grand holding my Maggie's hand
b
Maggie Walks barefoot everywhere
wears a scented flower in her hair
plays her guitar while we harmonize 
got the most beautiful pale blue eyes

But ain't it grand holding MY Maggie's hand 
yeah it's so grand holding my maggies hand 
We can make love all through the night
pick stars to wish on shinning so bright
Feel so grand holding my Maggie's hand

Travis,

I love the first line of the chorus--it sets a lot up. But for what it's worth, on this one, I'm just not feeling a connection between the verses and the chorus--that is, e.g. Maggie comes out of nowhere in the chorus from the first two verses, so the line doesn't resonate as it deserves to. Perhaps reshape the verses to focus on why, regardless of what's going on, it's "grand to hold Maggie's hand". Not sure that makes sense, but for what it's worth.

All the best,

Deej
