[Verse]
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


[Chorus]
   Em                      F#m     Em     A
Oh Maggie I couldn’t have tried anymore
    Em               A            Em                   A
You led me away from home just to save you from being alone
     Em                 A                  D
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts


[Verse]
    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


[Chorus]
   Em                     F#m      Em     A
Oh Maggie I couldn’t have tried anymore
    Em               A            Em                   A
You led me away from home just to save you from being alone
    Em                     A                 D
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without


[Verse]
A                  G                D
All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
        A                       G
But you turned into a lover and mother
                 D
what a lover you wore me out
G                        D
All you did was wreck my bed,
           G                      A
and in the morning kick me in the head


[Chorus]
   Em                     F#m      Em    A
Oh Maggie I couldn’t have tried anymore
    Em               A                Em                 A
You led me away from home, 'cause you didn't want to be alone
     Em                       A              D
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

[Verse]
   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


[Chorus]
   Em                 F#m             Em    A
Oh Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
           Em                      A
You made a first class fool out of me,
           Em                  A
but I'm as blind as a fool can be
     Em                  A           D
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
