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
    Em                      F#m     Em     A  Asus4
Oh Maggie I couldnít have tried any more
    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 

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything
I laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax 
Oh Maggie I couldnít have tried any more  
You led me away from home just to save you from being alone
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without

All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover and mother what a lover you wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed And in the morning kick me in the head  
Oh Maggie I couldnít have tried any more  
You led me away from home 'cause you didn't want to be alone 
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

I suppose I should collect my books and get back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand 
Oh Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
You made a first class fool out of me, but I'm as blind as a fool can be 
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
