Redbone - Maggie Lyrics




Maggie was a buck and gain
Following the hookin' game
Boo-lah rooka hook and chain
Maggie's eyes could cook a man

But oh, she loved to tantalize
Make it feel like paradise
Oh, nobody cry when Maggie die
When Maggie die - um um um

Boom boom like a shi shi hand
Take her to the rock and hang
Rum and boogie love to dance
Maggie didn't stand no chance

But oh, she love to tantalize
And make it feel like paradise
And oh, nobody cry when Maggie die
When Maggie die - oh oh oh

Boom boom boom - boom poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - boom poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - poor Maggie

Maggie was a buck and gain
Following the hookin' game
Boo-lah rooka hook and chain
Maggie's eyes could cook a man

But oh, she loved to tantalize
And make it feel like paradise
And oh, nobody cry when Maggie die
When Maggie die - mmmm

Boom boom like a shi shi hand
Take her to the rock and hang
Rum and boogie love to dance
Maggie didn't stand no chance

But oh, she love to tantalize
And make it feel like paradise
And oh, nobody cry when Maggie die
When Maggie die - oh oh oh now

Boom boom boom - boom poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - boom poor Maggie
Boom boom boom - poor Maggie

Redbone Maggie Comments
  1. therealniksongs

    First time I ever heard guitar through a Leslie. When I first heard this song I had no idea how they got that sound---a couple years later I got a Leslie---then I knew! Ha-ha. These guys were so damn funky. Underrated band that ought to be more remembered.

  2. Thorkell

    Respect from a Led Zeppelin fan, this is so in their wave, wish they were more recognised.

  3. Emily Anthony

    Loved this band " Redbone " .

  4. Ralph Ranti

    Still very good music , memories

  5. Martin Katz

    Great, great, great groove!! Really unique and very tasty.

  6. Steven Attanasso

    Good Song ....
    Plus , I was Young ....
    Foolish , too .....

  7. Tim Cunnane

    Had the first couple albums from this cool band

  8. Edmund Fendel

    Superb. Bought the album too years ago. Witch Queen as well. They were a great band.

  9. Roy Rush

    I had this song on a comp lp called Different Strokes on Columbia

  10. Daniel Rosenfeld

    I remember hearing this as a teen in the '70's and wondering why I hadn't heard it before and why it wasn't a hit. I'll use a term I've used in other postings---definitive funk. Looove that bass line. G.bless Redbone!

    therealniksongs

    It WAS a hit. Maybe not a Number 1 but was a pretty big hit. I remember hearing it a LOT on radio back in those days.

  11. Brave Voice

    Native Americans invented Funk

  12. ear4funk

    This was a BIG club hit in the Black Community ... if its funky we took it in

    Clifford Booker

    Indeed & agreed !

  13. Redbone Band

    Crazy talented Native American group which should be in the Hall of Fame.
