Lyrics
A home coming queen in the 50’s Madelyn was a sight to see The man of her dreams joseph Mc gee Was the captain of the football team They married right out of high school She gave herself to Joseph that night Ten years of bliss then terrible a twist A house fire took josephs life Chorus Now they just call her Mad Maddy That old woman with the toothless grin When she downs a pint and closes her eyes She’s dancing with joseph again (Instrumental) Madelyn is now pushing 80 Panhandling to buy more wine Addled and broke but the wine offers hope For a heart stuck in another time She knows that they call her mad Maddy But really she don’t mind at all If they give up their change they can use any name The wine lets her love come to call Bridge He appeared soon after the funeral Though Madelyn knew Joseph was dead She drank to get her nerves steady And danced with his ghost instead Chorus Now they just call her Mad Maddy That old woman with the toothless grin When she downs a pint and closes her eyes She’s dancing with joseph again Tag The wine kicks in She flashes her grin And dances with Joseph again Dance Maddy Dance Maddy Dance Maddy Dance
