A                 G                           D         Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
Wake up Maggie, I think I've got something to say to you.
     A                     G                D             Dsus2 D Dsus2 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                      D        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           G      D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts.

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age.
    A                   G                       D         Dsus2 D Dsus2 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                      D        Em     A
Oh Maggie, I couldn`t have tried anymore.
    Em               A              Em               A
You led me away from home, 'cuz you didn't wanna be alone.
    Em                           A          G      D  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
You stole my heart, and that's a pain I can do without.
 
 
VERSE 3
A                      G                D           Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
All I needed was was a friend to lend a guiding hand.
    A                            G                       D          Dsus2 D Dsus2 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                      D        Em     A
Oh Maggie, I couldn`t have tried anymore.
    Em               A              Em                 A
You led me away from home, 'cuz you didn't want to be alone.
    Em                   A        G  D  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
You stole my soul....  I love you anyway.

I suppose I could collect my books and get back to school.
       A                  G                      D           Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
Maybe, steal my mama's cue, make a living out of playing pool.
       G                           D    G                     A
Maybe, find myself a rock and roll band, that needs a helping hand.
          Em                 D      Em      A
Oh Maggie I, I couldn`t have tried anymore.
           Em                      A          Em                  A
You made a first class fool out of me, I'm as blind as a fool can be.
    Em             A                    G    D  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
You stole my soul, I couldn't leave you if I tried.
           Em        A                      D         G
I couldn't leave ya..  I couldn't leave ya..  no, no, nooo...

I couldn't leave ya..... Woahoooo... Maggie...
