Lyrics

TO MARGARET
(Ponton/Papageorge)

VERSE#1:
Margaret's door was always open
You were always welcome there
And people came across the ocean
And lived within her care
She used to stroll us down the block
When we were very small
Mending hearts and mending knees
Whenever we would fall

VERSE#2:
Margaret came so long ago
From the Emerald Isle
When Irish friends came to call
She'd greet them with her smile
They'd have a drink and share a laugh
And dance a waltz or two
And Margaret always sang a song
Before the night was through

CHORUS:
Margaret you are here with me
In everything I do
And I know I will never lose
The memory of you

(Instrumental)

VERSE#3:
Margaret passed away in winter
Tea cup by her side
A simple end to a simple life
In gentle peace she died
She owned no banks or fancy cars
No office did she hold
But it's Margaret I will think of most
As I myself grow old

(Repeat Chorus)
