Intro: | D | Em | G | D | (2 times)

A                G                           D
Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you
     A                    G                D
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    A
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                  A           G      D
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts

    A                     G                   D
The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
    A                   G                       D
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    A
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                     A          G      D
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without

A                  G                D
All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
        A                       G                       D
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    A
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                        A         G    D
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

Solo: | G | A | D | G | Em | G | D | D |

A                    G                      D
I suppose I should collect my books and get back to school
   A                G                        D
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    A
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                   A        G  D
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
