About the Song
"Maggie May" is a traditional Liverpool folk song (Roud #1757) about a prostitute who robbed a sailor. It has been the informal anthem of the city of Liverpool for about 150 years. John Manifold, in his Penguin Australian Song Book, writes: "A foc'sle song of Liverpool origin apparently, but immensely popular among seamen all over the world...". - see . Stan Hugill in his Shanties from the Seven Seas writes of an early reference to the song in the diary of Charles Picknell, a sailor on the convict ship Kains that sailed to Van Diemen's Land in 1830. "Maggie May" has some similarities with the American song "Nellie Gray" which was written in 1856. "Maggie" is coarse and cheerful.

This song should not be confused with Rod Stewart's song of the same name, "Maggie May", which topped.    Download this sheet!
