Waste Of Aces – Maggie Magill Lyrics

Well she’s got no living relative and they couldn’t find a will
The bank that tried to sell the house of Maggie Magill
They put it on the market but they couldn’t make a sale
Cause every time you’re in the house ol’ Maggie starts to wail
Maggie Magill, Maggie Magill
She’s got forty acres and a house on the hill
She died in last September but she’s living there still
Has anybody seen the ghost of Maggie Magill? So the bank called an exorcist with cloth, book, and cross
He said an incantation, telling Maggie to “get lost”
But ol’ Maggie started howling and the room grew deathly cold
They never saw the priest again alive, or so I’m told
Maggie Magill, Maggie Magill
She’s got forty acres and a house on the hill
She died in last September but she’s living there still
Has anybody seen the ghost of Maggie Magill? Maggie Magill, Maggie Magill
She’s got forty acres and a house on the hill
She died in last September but she’s living there still
Has anybody seen the ghost of Maggie Magill? So the bank they called a medium, a spiritual du jour
But she got a pounding headache when she stepped in the door
She heard an awful moaning, like an animal in pain
The minute she stepped in well she stepped right out again
Maggie Magill, Maggie Magill
She’s got forty acres and a house on the hill
She died in last September but she’s living there still
Has anybody seen the ghost of Maggie Magill? So if you’re down in Maggie’s and you’re passing by the hill
You hear an awful wailing and you feel a sudden chill
Just keep your feet-a-moving and turn your step away
Cause if you go to Maggie’s, well you’re going there to stay
Maggie Magill, Maggie Magill
She’s got forty acres and a house on the hill
She died in last September but she’s living there still
Has anybody seen the ghost of Maggie Magill?!
