Verse 1 (0:46) (steel string acoustic) 
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     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                  D 
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts  
 
 
Verse 2 (1:30) (steel string acoustic) 
       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     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                 D 
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without 
 
Verse 3 (2:15) (steel string acoustic) 
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     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              D 
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

Verse 4 (3:15) (steel string acoustic) 
 
        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     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           D 
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
