lamarca Lyr Req: Farewell to Mrs. Magee? / Sailor's Wife? (14) RE: Lyrics:Farewell to Mrs. Magee 01 Apr 03

Well, it's been 7 long years since I first posted this - maybe some of the newcomers who've joined over the years may have encountered this song. As I said above, it's about a "step-husband" - one who steps in when the real husband goes off to sea. It is NOT "Kitty Magee", "Mrs. McGrath", etc. The chorus goes:

So keep an eye on the weathercock
The other one out to sea
The day you spy the ship come home
Farewell to Mrs. Magee!

Hope springs eternal...
