Maggies Dream

Song Author Dave Loggins og Lisa Silver Performer: Don Williams Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Maggie's up each morning at [C]four am
By [G]five behind the counter at the [C]diner
And her [G]trucker friends out on the road will [C]soon be stopping in
As the [F]lights go on at [C]Cafe [D7]Carol-in[G]a  

Maggie's been a waitress here most [C]all her life
[G]Thirty years of coffee cups and [C]sore feet
The [G]mountains around Ashville she's never [C]seen the other side
And [F]closer now to [C]fifty than to [D7]for-   [G]ty  

Maggie's [C]never had a love she [G]said she's never had enough
[C]Time to [D7]let a man in[G]to her life aw but [C]Maggie has a dream
She's [G]had since she was seventeen to [C]find a [D7]husband and be a [G]wife

Maggie knows the truckers most [C]by first name
[G]What they'll have to say and what they'll [C]order
And they [G]take her in their stories to [C]places far away
And then [F]leave her with the [C]dishes dreams and [D7]quar-[G]ters

Maggie's [C]never had a love she [G]said she's never had enough
[C]Time to [D7]let a man in[G]to her life aw but [C]Maggie has a dream
She's [G]had since she was seventeen to [C]find a [D7]husband and be a [G]wife

And she re[Dm]lies upon the jukebox on the lonely afternoon
But when the [C]business starts to slow down she plays the saddest tunes
And she [F]stares off down the [C]highway and she [F]wonders where it [C]goes
Nobody to go home to and it's almost time to [D7]close


Maggie's up each morning at four am
By five behind the counter at the diner
And her trucker friends out on the road will soon be stopping in
As the lights go on at Cafe Carol-ina

Maggie's been a waitress here most all her life
Thirty years of coffee cups and sore feet
The mountains around Ashville she's never seen the other side
And closer now to fifty than to for-ty

Maggie's never had a love she said she's never had enough
Time to let a man into her life aw but Maggie has a dream
She's had since she was seventeen to find a husband and be a wife

Maggie knows the truckers most by first name
What they'll have to say and what they'll order
And they take her in their stories to places far away
And then leave her with the dishes dreams and quar-ters

Maggie's never had a love she said she's never had enough
Time to let a man into her life aw but Maggie has a dream
She's had since she was seventeen to find a husband and be a wife

And she relies upon the jukebox on the lonely afternoon
But when the business starts to slow down she plays the saddest tunes
And she stares off down the highway and she wonders where it goes
Nobody to go home to and it's almost time to close
