G F C 1. Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you. G F C It's late September and I really should be back at school. F C F G I know I keep you amused, but I feel I'm being used. Dm Em Dm Gsus G Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more. Dm G Dm G You lured me away from home, just to save you from being alone. Dm G C You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts. G F C 2. The morning sun, when it's in your face, really shows your age. G F C But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything. F C F G I laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax. Dm Em Dm Gsus G Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more. Dm G Dm G You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone. Dm G F C You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without. G F C 3. All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand. G F C But you turned into a lover and, mother, what a lover, you wore me out. F C F G All you did was wreck my bed, and in the morning kick me in the head. Dm Em Dm Gsus G Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more Dm G Dm G You lured me away from home 'cause you didn't want to be alone. Dm G F C You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if, I tried. G F C 4. I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school. G F C Or steal my daddy's cue, make a living out of playing pool. F C F G Or find myself a rock and roll band, that needs a helping hand. Dm Em Dm Gsus G Oh Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face. Dm G Dm G You made a first class fool out of me, but I'm as blind as a fool can be. Dm G F C G F C G F C You stole my heart but I love you anyway.
