Intro:

  

 

  A                        G                                        D (2)

Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you

       A                               G                      D (2)

It's late September and I really should be back at school

      G                            D           G                      A                

I know I keep you amused, but I feel I'm being used

       Em                            F#m        Em     Asus4

Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

      Em                           A                 Em                           A

You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone

       Em                           G (½)          A (½)  D (2)

You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts

 

        A                              G                             D (2)

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age

        A                           G                                 D (2)

But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything

   G                           D            G                                  A                

I laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax

       Em                            F#m        Em     Asus4

Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

       Em                           A                 Em                           A

You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone

       Em                             G (½)      A (½)         D (2)

You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without

 

A                            G                    D (2)

All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand

              A                                 G                                     D (2)

But you turned into a lover and mother what a lover you wore me out

 G                                      D                    G                               A                

All you did was wreck my bed and in the morning kick me in the head

       Em                            F#m        Em     Asus4

Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

      Em                           A                       Em                       A

You lured me away from home 'cause you didn't want to be alone

       Em                                G (½)       A (½)      D (2)

You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

A                              G                                 D (2)

I suppose I should collect my books and get back to school

       A                       G                                   D (2)

Or steal my daddy's cue make a living out of playing pool

     G                                      D              G                     A                

Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand

      Em                      F#m                   Em     Asus4

Oh Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face

                    Em                          A                  Em                         A

You made a first class fool out of me, but I'm as blind as a fool can be

       Em                          G (½)     A (½)  D (2)

You stole my heart but I love you anyway
