    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

     

    Solo:

    / Em - - - / A - - - / D - - - / G - - - /

    / Em - - - / G - A - / D - - - / - - - - /

     

    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
