Intro

| [D] | [A7sus4] | [Gsus2] | [D] [Gsus2↓↓] |

[A] Wake up Maggie I [G] think I got something to [D] say to you | [D]
It's [A] late September and I [G] really should be [D] back at school | [D]
I [G] know I keep you a- [D] mused
but I [Gsus2] feel I'm being [A] used
Oh [Em] Maggie I couldn't have [F#m] tried any [Em] more | [A7sus4]
You [Em] led me away from [A] home just to [Em] save you from being a- [A] lone
You [Em] stole my heart and | [A] that's what [Gsus2] really | [D] hurts | [D]

The [A] morning sun when it's [G] in your face really [D] shows your age | [D]
But [A] that don't worry me [G] none in my eyes you're [D] everything | [D]
I [G] laughed at all of your [D] jokes
my [Gsus2] love you didn't need to [A] coax
Oh [Em] Maggie I couldn't have [F#m] tried any [Em] more | [A7sus4]
You [Em] led me away from [A] home just to [Em] save you from being a- [A] lone
You [Em] stole my soul that's a | [A] pain I can [Gsus2] do with- | [D] out | [D]

[A] All I needed was a [G] friend to lend a [D] guiding hand | [D]
But you [A] turned into a lover
and [G] mother what a lover you [D] wore me out | [D]
[G] All you did was wreck my [D] bed
And in the [Gsus2] morning kick me in the [A] head
Oh [Em] Maggie I couldn't have [F#m] tried any [Em] more | [A7sus4]
You [Em] led me away from [A] home cos you [Em] didn't want to be a- [A] lone
You [Em] stole my heart I couldn't | [A] leave you [Gsus2] if I | [D] tried | [D]

Instrumental
| [Em] | [A] | [D] | [G] |   
| [Em] | [G] | [D] | [D] |

[A] I suppose I could co- [G] llect my books and get on [D] back to school | [D]
Or [A] steal my daddy's [G] cue and make a living out of [D] playing pool | [D]
Or [G] find myself a rock and roll [D] band that [G] needs a helping [A] hand
Oh [Em] Maggie I wish I'd [F#m] never seen your [Em] face | [A7sus4]
You made a [Em] first class fool out of [A] me
But I'm as [Em] blind as a fool can [A] be
You [Em] stole my heart but I | [A] love you [Gsus2] any- | [D] way | [D]
