D 
I’m thinking to
D7 
night of the  
G 
old rustic  
D 
bridge
 
That  
G 
bends o’er the  
E7 
murmuring 
 
 
A-A7 
stream
 
‘Twas  
D 
there Maggie  
D7 
dear, with our  
G 
hearts full of  
D 
cheer
 
We  
G 
strayed ‘neath the  
A 
moon’s gentle  
D-G-D 
gleam
 
‘Twas  
A 
there I first met you, the  
E7 
light of your eyes
 
A
A 
woke in my  
E7 
heart a sweet  
A-A7 
thrill
 
Though  
D 
now far a
D7 
way, still my  
G 
thoughts fondly  
D 
stray
 
To the  
G 
old rustic  
A 
bridge by the  
D-G-D 
mill


CHORUS

 
Be
G 
neath it a  
A 
stream gently  
D-D7 
rippled
A 
Around it the  
E7 
birds loved to  
A-A7 
thrill
 
Though  
D 
now far a
D7 
way still my  
G 
thoughts fondly  
D 
stray
 
To the  
G 
old rustic  
A 
bridge by the  
D-G-D 
mill

How often, dear Maggie, when years passed away
And we plighted lovers became
We rambled the path to the bridge, day by day
The smiles of each other to claim
But one day we parted in pain and regret
Our vows then we could not fulfil
Oh, may we soon meet and our fond love repeat
On the old rustic bridge by the mill

I keep in my mem’ry the love of the past
With me ’tis as bright as of old
For deep in my heart it was planted to last
In absence it never grows cold
I think of you darling, when lonely at night
And when all is peaceful and still
My heart wanders back in a dream of delight
To the old rustic bridge by the mill
